Based on Norman Maclean's childhood experiences, the title novella has established itself as one of the most moving stories of our time; it captivates readers with vivid descriptions of life along Montana's Big Blackfoot River and its near magical blend of fly fishing with the troubling affections of the heart.
The paperback edition is now available with an evocative new cover by acclaimed Montana painter Russell Chatham.
"A masterpiece. . . . This is more than stunning fiction: It is a lyric record of a time and a life, shining with Maclean's special gift for calling the reader's attention to arts of all kindsâthe arts that work in nature, in personality, in social intercourse, in fly-fishing."âKenneth M. Pierce, Village Voice
