The final chapters of Scott Waldie’s iconic Travers Corners trilogy. 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 people 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.

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.
