Format: Hardcover
This is the best of understated exquisitely crafted prose. Or is it poetry in disguise? How could I have never read it? Ordered it when following recommendations for memoirs to read.

First off, the story ends up knocking you out. Family, relationships. Tough and delicate. Then if you like fly fishing and Montana rivers, it's filled with those. My father was a fly fisherman on the legendary Battenkill, so I can relate tho' I had a hard time killing trout so didn't follow in his footsteps.

I get a chuckle out of the way Maclean damns people without seeming judgmental. Heh. But the best aspect... I'm still tingling from the effect of his word painting, such artistry.

This hardcover edition is from the University of Chicago Press. It is printed on quality paper and the text is peppered with tasteful woodcuts by Barry Moser, who also is the book's designer. The font, large and clear enough to be read by aging eyes, is Monotype Van Dijck. The front cover bears an embossed dry fly, under a dust jacket with an image of the same and bordered by a western river watercolor, also by artist Barry Moser. It is a class act.

I have read this wonderful book several times, have viewed the movie several times and wondered if I could find a like-new copy at Amazon for my own library. Thank you, Amazon!

Format: Hardcover
One of my very avid reader friends picked this book when asked if he can recommend only one book and like destiny, I found this edition in a used book store in perfect condition. This short treasure is so beautifully soulful, meditative and poetic, it brought me to tears several times. This is a thinking person's book about all the turns and bends in life, and very deep and quiet experiences of accepting what life deposits and runs through during its run. It is witten very frugally, nothing is overdone, wasted or lacking, in its breathtakingly beautiful visual writing, every shape, color and sound becomes alive, like "One of life's quiet excitement is to stand somewhat apart from yourself and watch one softly becoming the author of something beautiful even it it only a floating ash". I savored every moment of reading this book.
