Two thousand miles is a staggering distance for any kind of journey. But imagine making it not by car or even foot – but by fin. That's what faces Chinook, a female king salmon, as she takes a dramatic trip to safely deliver her eggs. From the Bering Sea, up the Yukon River, and on to the Nisutlin River, A King Salmon Journey takes young readers on an engaging ride through the waters of Alaska and Canada, bringing to life the biology – and mystery – of one of the world's most popular fish. Based on the story of a real-life chinook, this beautifully illustrated book deftly combines science with a fast-paced tale of survival and perseverance.
