Title: A River Runs Through It and Other Stories
Author: Norman Maclean
Finished: July 21, 2009
After many weeks of reading through these short stories, I finally finished the last one. It was such fun reading the short story that the film A River Runs Through It was based on, especially since it’s been so long since I watched the movie. This was the perfect opportunity to read the story and become reacquainted with the film at the same time.
This collection of novellas incorporates Maclean’s own experiences in the forest service, living in the mountains in the west, plus camping and fishing, to create this world where life isn’t easy, family isn’t easy, and finding out what you truly love despite everything else.
His stories are so real and personable that every person who reads it can relate in some way to the message he has penned for eternity.
