    Thank you, Net Galley and Spiegel & Grau for the chance to read this astonishing book. I chose it initially because of the title.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down, even during a beach vacation. It is a gripping biography of a man dedicated to a sensitive ecosystem that is in peril. I appreciated that the author (Guido’s cousin) did not gloss over her subject’s shortcomings, but crafted a c...

    This book is an eye-opener on the crisis regarding salmon health around the globe. There were so many points that I never knew about: how different salmon varieties prefer different parts of a river for spawning and how their bodies are built to return to that specific area; how we can learn so much...
  • Fredrick Danysh
    A biography of Guido Rahr and his efforts to preserve wild salmon in the Pacific Basin. Today, he would be classed ADD during his early years. This insightful book was written by his cousin. This was a free review copy obtained via Goodreads.com....
