Written 35 years before 'A River Runs Through It' - This preacher's first son dies a WW I casualty. 'The Bitter Roots' is perhaps Msla's 1st. autobiographical novel. Norman Macleod returned to Missoula to write this book after the untimely deaths of 2 prominent MCHS classmates & friends - Paul Maclean and U of M star 'Wild Bill' William C. Kelly. All three suffered the ravages of alcoholism & writing the book may have saved Macleod's life. According to H.G. Merriam, some characters were clearly recognizable. The (deliberate?) drowning of a Msla youngster did occur (1917), upsetting the whole community. It resulted in Msla's 1st. public swimming pool. For what's likely another view of Kelly see "Logging . . . and 'Your Pal, Jim'", by Norman Maclean.
