The University of Chicago  (nd) indicates published in 1976 but is a later reprint, 8vo Illust 217p. Soft Cover. This book is a modern classic of collected short stories. The leading story, A River Runs Through, is about fly fishing in Montana's Big Blackfoot River. Fly fishing is the one common activity that helps bridge troubled relationships between a father and his sons. The first paragraph "In our family there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christs disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea og Galiee were fly fisherman and that John the favorite is a dry fly fisherman.” sets the scene of this b classical book. ”It is earthy, whimsical, authoritative, wise, it touches the heart without blushing, and traces lasting images of the eye. One of those rare memoirs that can be called a masterpiece. ’…...….Nick Lyons. 


In 1992 the story was made into a movie directed by Robert Redford and
 starring Matt Damon -Very Fine
