Salmon: A Fish, the Earth, and the History of a Common Fate - Mark Kurlansky

9780861541256

WINNER OF THE JOHN AVERY AWARD AT THE ANDRE SIMON AWARDS

Over the centuries, salmon have been a vital resource, a dietary staple and an irresistible catch. But there is so much more to this extraordinary fish.

As Mark Kurlansky reveals, salmon persist as a barometer for the health of our planet. Centuries of our greatest assaults on nature can be seen in their harrowing yet awe-inspiring life cycle.

Full of all Kurlansky's characteristic curiosity and insight, Salmon is a magisterial history of a wondrous creature.
