Langdon Cook is a congenial guide to the wilds of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and arid parts of Northern California as he documents diminishing numbers of salmon, tensions between commercial and sport fishermen, and the pure joy of spotting the silver fish in its native habitat. Narrator John H. Mayer is appropriately relaxed and amiable in his tone while also maintaining the author's enthusiasm, wit, and concern. Mayer expresses the ease that Cook has with all manner of individuals, including anglers, gillnetters, chefs, environmentalists, indigenous populations, and bureaucrats, all while casting a hook, snorkeling, filleting, or eating sushi. This audiobook is a timely reminder of the negative impacts of humans through climate change, overfishing, damming, and salmon farms, as well as a peek into salmon hierarchy. Naturally, king salmon are at the top. A.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2017]
