Wood engravingsNorman Maclean 1902 90 woodsman scholar teacher and storyteller grew up in the Western Rocky Mountains of Montana and worked for many years in logging camps and for the United States Forestry Service before beginning his academic career He retired from the University of Chicago in 19 I read this book for a third time on assignment from a class I m auditing at the University of Colorado a class taught by Patricia Limerick of the Center of the American West The story is iconic western literatureHere we read in novella format the essentially autobiographical story of the author s painful memories of his relationship with his beloved brother who lives on in his consciousness as the Michelangelo of fly fishingThe retelling of the story written when the author was in his seventies reflects its Scottish Presbyterian roots in his family upbringing The reader must listen closely read closely between the lines to hear the deep heartbreak that is its driving energyAt least 80% of the narrative is of the river the mountains and forests and most especially the art of fly fishing The story of the family could be removed from the pages and an interesting travelogue would remain I read reviews that refer to the fishing as an extended metaphor but my perspective tells me its primarily function is to serve as a hiding place for the author a buffer to help him moderate the intensity of the pain he continues to bear from his failed longings to help a man bent on self destructionI have visions of the author retreating to his writing cottage laboring fully for the two years it reportedly took him to write a this short novellong story I suspect much of his time was spent in silent reverieLater made into a film of surpassing beauty by Robert Redford the story lives on as an enduring classic of mountain life
