Overview

“[Legends of the Fall] may well be the best set of novellas to appear in this country during the last quarter century.” —Robert Houston, New York Times Book Review

New York Times bestselling author Jim Harrison is one of America’s most beloved and critically acclaimed writers. Now available in eBook for the first time, the classic Legends of the Fall is Harrison at his most memorable: a striking collection of novellas written with exceptional brilliance and a ferocious love of life.

The title novella, “Legends of the Fall”—which was made into the film of the same name—is an epic, moving tale of three brothers fighting for justice in a world gone mad. Moving from the raw landscape of early twentieth-century Montana to the blood-drenched European battlefields of World War I and back again to Montana, Harrison’s powerful story explores the theme of revenge and the actions to which people resort when their lives or goals are threatened, painting an unforgettable portrait of the twentieth-century man.

Also including the novellas “Revenge” and “The Man Who Gave Up His Name,” Legends of the Fall confirms Jim Harrison’s reputation as one of the finest American voices of his generation.

this book is by far one of the best books ive ever read. I think that the author is very in touch with real life, and this book just amazed me when I read it.The characters are so engrossing that I had trouble putting it down. If your looking for a great book to read that will not leave you dissapointed and wondering why you ever bought it then buy this book.

I can't believe this is getting the reviews it is. I don't know if I received the shortened version or not. on my nook it was 200 pages, on BN it says 999 pages. the first story in the book was an interesting story, but 50 pages into the next story I could not even finish the book. the story seemed to drag on without making any sense. I always finish my books but I just could see taking the time to continue on with this one. sorry.
