Default Web Page: Nice Excerpt From River Runs Throuugh It

Hello folks,

Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It, excerpt

Thought you may like to have a little read.
I came across this neat little web page that had the classic excerpt from The River Runs Through It. Love the writing, and attention to details in the descriptions. Nice place to be brought up.

Loved the movie, Pretty sure I want a hard cover copy of the book to read. Nice one to have in the library.

phil

Thanks Phil.

Oddly enough loved the book; I've probably read it at least three times. The movie? Save for bits and pieces ..... not so much.

Yeah Hollywood always has to dumb things down, leave things out, change things and glam them up to draw a larger catch. Want the book badly now
