About this book

Shows how a series of de facto historical experiments - first in the UK, then in New England, and now in the Pacific Northwest - followed a similar story in which overfishing and sweeping changes to the landscape rendered the world inhospitable to salmon. Montgomery traces the human impacts on salmon over the last 1000 years and examines the implications for both salmon recovery efforts and the more general problem of human impacts on the natural world.
