From its first magnificent sentence, "In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing", to the last, "I am haunted by waters", A River Runs Through It is an American classic. Based on Norman Maclean's childhood experiences, A River Runs Through It has established itself as one of the most moving stories of our time; it captivates readers with vivid descriptions of life along Montana's Big Blackfoot River and its near magical blend of fly fishing with the troubling affections of the heart

On August 5, 1949, a crew of 15 of the U.S. Forest Service's elite airborne firefighters, the Smokejumpers, stepped into the sky above a remote forest fire in Montana wilderness. Less than an hour later, all but three were dead or fatally burned in a "blowup," an explosive 2,000 degree firestorm 300 feet deep and 200 feet tall. Winner of a 1992 National Book Critic Award, Young men & fire consumed 14 years of Norman Maclean's life. He sifted through grief and controversy in search of the truth about the Mann Gulch tragedy, then wrote about it in excruciating detail. The sobering story of the worst disaster in the history of the Forest Service also embraces the themes of honor, death, compassion, rebirth, and the human spirit

Unter der strengen Obhut ihres Vaters, ein presbyterianischer Priester, wachsen die Brüder Norman und Paul in der unberührten Wildnis Montanas der 30er Jahre auf. Zwei Brüder, wie sie gegensätzlicher nicht sein können: Paul, provozierend und aufsässig, Norman, ruhig und besonnen. Ihr Vater erzieht seine Söhne im Einklang mit Gott und der Natur und vermittelt ihnen die mythischen und mystischen Seiten des Lebens. Ihre gemeinsame Leidenschaft: Das Fliegenfischen am Fluss, der selbst ein Teil der Ewigkeit ist. Der Kindheit entwachsen ist Paul Jounalist geworden, verfällt dem Alkohol, macht Spielschulden und landet wiederholt im Gefängis. Der intellektuelle Norman hingegen ist zurückhaltend und träumt davon, die Welt ausserhalb Missoulas zu entdecken. Bald muss der eine Bruder die Bedeutung des Wortes Familientreue erfahren, nachdem der andere in grössere Schwierigkeiten denn je geraten ist. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)

En "El río de la vida", la primera y más extensa de las tres historias autobiográficas que forman este libro, un padre estricto transmite a sus dos hijos -Norman y Paul? su pasión por la pesca con mosca. Los ríos tienen su orden y los chicos aprenden a conocerlo, pero las aguas siempre esconden algún misterio. La vida, como los ríos, fluye sin que muchas veces podamos resolver los interrogantes que ésta nos plantea; al final de la suya, Norman rememora los acontecimientos del último verano en que pescó junto a su padre y su hermano tratando de buscar en ellos las respuestas. Leñadores, proxenetas, y Tu camarada, Jim y Servicio forestal de Estados Unidos, 1919 completan un libro que es ya un clásico de la literatura norteamericana reciente. La pesca con mosca, el trabajo de los guardabosques, la naturaleza y la vida en Montana a principios de siglo son algunos de los temas que el autor aborda en estas inolvidables historias en las que retrata su aprendizaje vital; con ellas quiso expresar, según sus propias palabras, un poco de ese amor que siento por la tierra .
