Two brothers growing up in Missoula, Montana in the 1930s learn the art of fly fishing from their father. But one brother's life off the river is as fragmented and troubled as his life on the river is fluid and gracious. His older brother labors to save him before his art is only a memory. Also includes: Logging and Pimping, "Your Pal, Jim" and USFS 1919: The Ranger, the Cook and a Hole in the Sky.

"Norman Maclean's A River Runs Through It portrays two brothers' passion for the sport of fly fishing against the rugged wilderness of Montana in the thirties. While the prose of this evocative and lyrical memoir is simple and direct, Maclean's observations of man and nature are keen. At every turn, then, this seemingly simple story is charged with more sublime and universal implications. Joel Fabiani's reading of Maclean's text, while precise, is passionless and emotionally un-involving. While the simplicity of the text may be clearly rendered, the listener is forced to fight upstream against Fabiani's flat, narration in order to luxuriate in the novel's rich moments of transcendent splendor.
