Return to Travers Corners
StorieseBook - 2018
This nostalgic collection of short fiction "celebrates the simple pleasures of rural Montana" (Publishers Weekly). "Equal portions of Lake Wobegon Days and Winesburgh, Ohio, and add a dash of A River Run Through" hailed Booklist on Scott Waldie's first collection of Travers Corners stories. Now the homespun storyteller returns to the windblown Montana town, population of 329—an outpost for the celebration of all things wild and beautiful: rivers and creeks, wildlife, cattle ranches, tall grasses, and timbered mountains. Among those you'll meet in this charming collection are Dolores, who runs the beauty parlor; Junior, the worst fisherman to never give up the sport; and Judson, a boat builder, and the best guide Carrie Creek ever had. Here are stories of small town friendships and fights, of famous fishermen and unlucky anglers, of trout so big they're practically mythical, and taller tales of the ones that got away. The stories of Travers Corners hearken to a simpler world of wild places, good deeds, and unforgettable acquaintances made along the way.
