Praise for "Travers Corners": "A collection of stories that present "a brilliant image of small-town life in Montana." --"Kirkus Reviews" .,.".this charming debut collection of stories. Waldie builds his tales around character, creating a small community of homespun folk who are quintessentially American and just a bit eccentric." --"Publishers Weekly" .,.".sheer heaven on a trout stream..." --Kirkus Reviews "This wonderful collection of Montana short stories made me want to drop everything and light out for Big Sky Country and never look back. Travers Corners is a terrific debut by a gifted writer, who gets the contemporary American West just exactly right on every page." --Howard Frank Mosher "The book has a little of the feel of T"he Last Picture Show," Waldie also manages a paradox, demonstrating that the decent, more-or-less ordinary people in this pretty nice place live lives of consequence, knit one to another by community, history, affection or animus. They matter." --"Fly Rod & Reel" "Visit Travers Corners for a good read; it's a town full of people worth knowing." ---EXPO Book Review, 1998 .,."a lovely tongue-in-cheek look at make-believe small-town America." --A"rizona Daily Star" "Like the characters he writes about, Waldie's pace is slow and deliberate, and he demonstrates why the journey is the destination. He leads the way to a tiny corner of the world where we can refresh ourselves and still make it home for dinner. Travers Corner is just such a place." --"Woodland Hills Daily News "(LA-circ. 118,495) "a shrewd eye for rural characters, the book may remind some readers of Winesburg, Ohio, Lake Wobegon Days, or A River RunsThrough It." --"Gazette, "Billings, MT "Scott Waldie has captured the essence of a small Montana town and the characters who live there. Written with warmth and wit, these stores will make you long for a second home like Travers Corners." --"Montana Outdoors" "Best of all, the warmth isn't sappy and the wit isn't just tinsel. Both are generated from a generous understanding of human nature." --"Montana Magazine"Reseña del editor:
Travers Corners, Montana, is not much more than Main Street. There's Ed's Garage and Filling Station; McCracken's General Store-still owned and run by Junior, the worst fisherman who ever lived to fish; the Tin Cup Bar and Cafe; Dolores's Beauty Parlor; and The Carrie Creek Boat Works and Guide Service-Judson C. Clark proprietor. And yet, Travers Corners is also much more than that main street: it's an outpost for all things wild and beautiful--rivers and creeks, wildlife, cattle ranches, glaciated benchlands sweeping into the timbered mountains. Travers is a fly-fishing paradise. And it is peopled with the same cast of "witty homespun characters" ("Library Journal) as Waldie's first book of stories, Travers Corners. Now, in Travers Corners: The Final Chapters, Waldie delivers the final volume in the series, bringing joy and tears, love and closure to the lives of the characters we've grown to know and care so much about. The simplicity of the rural West beckons from every tale: wisdom, trust, and good deeds, the loyalty of friends, the love of wild places, a respect for all living things--written with a wit that puts it all in perspective. The world would be a better place if we had all spent a spell in Travers Corners.
