About this title


A collection of short stories celebrates the fictional town of Travers Corners, Montana, and the sport of fly fishing

From the Back Cover:

Welcome to Travers Corners, Montana, the Lake Wobegon of fly fishing, where the most celebrated thing that ever happened was Herbert Hoover stopping for gas. Yet interesting things do happen in Travers Corners, all the time, and this remarkable first collection of stories by Scott Waldie builds a true sense of a small town and the wonderful characters who fill it: Jud, who left to travel the world and returned to build boats and fly fish; Henry, Jud's best friend from childhood, who has a smirk and story for everything; Sarah, an emigrant from New York City who needed to find some peace; Dolores, the town beauty of years past and present; Junior, the general store owner who has a thorough knowledge of fly fishing but no discernible skill; and many, many more.Written with warmth, wit, and a shrewd eye for rural characters, Travers Corners will remind some readers of Winesburg, Ohio, and others of A river Runs Through It. And for fly fishers anywhere, Travers Corners will be a second home. (61/4 X 91/4, 196 pages)
