About this book

Salar the Salmon's migration through the rivers of Devon – surviving porpoises, seals, nets, fishermen, otters, poachers and weirs – is one of nature's great journeys. Intense, brilliantly imagined, the salmon's perilous return leaves us with a vivid, unsentimental picture of how both people and wildlife rely on a river and its estuary.

Little Toller's edition includes the black and white illustrations by C.F. Tunnicliffe that first appeared in 1936.
