Salmon: A Fish, the Earth, and the History of a Common Fate
WINNER OF THE JOHN AVERY AWARD AT THE ANDRÉ SIMON AWARDS
If we can save the salmon, we can save the world
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 international bestseller 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.
‘An epic, environmental tragedy’ Spectator
‘These creatures have nurtured our imagination as surely as our bodies. This book does them justice!’ Bill McKibben
