Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Award-winning photographer Lisk and writer Stuebner here share their passion for Idaho's Salmon River country. Lisk's photography dominates, strikingly capturing the diverse beauty of the landscape in all its seasons. His dramatic shots of moving water, unique portraits of flora and fauna, and impressive scenes of pastel skylines demonstrate his passion for the land while igniting the reader's. Stuebner's text, meanwhile, offers six profiles of locals, such as singer/songwriter Carole King, who share their fervor for this beautiful region. Also included is a collection of essays that depicts the way of life in Salmon River country and its environs: readers will learn about the life of a chinook salmon, be introduced to avid conservationists, and discover more about the area's many offerings. This delightful work is recommended for all public libraries as an introduction to a startlingly wonderous locale and a vicarious minivacation for readers.-Jo-Anne Mary Benson, Osgoode, Ont.
