WINNER OF THE JOHN AVERY AWARD AT THE ANDRE SIMON AWARDSIf we can save the salmon, we can save the worldOver 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
