- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Relates the natural and cultural history of the salmon, a symbol of fortitude, fecundity, self-sacrifice, loyalty to place and unwavering pursuit of destiny
"The words flow as easily and clearly as a well-oxygenated salmon stream and the text is illustrated with a wide variety of excellent photographs; including, surprisingly, a few of semi-naked beauties modelling attire made entirely out of salmon skin. . . . [the book] is first class and a great read. I heartily recommend it to all of you who, as I do, love and revere the 'King of Fish.'"
"Contains many nuggets of good science. . . . As Coates so eloquently reminds us, we still have much to learn from our salmon-worshipping ancestors."
