SALMON A Fish, the Earth, and the History of Their Common Fate

by | Read by Mark Kurlansky

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Mark Kurlansky narrates his powerful audiobook straightforwardly. His narrating style sounds hewn from his experience teaching and giving readings. The award-winning and renowned journalist's tone and cadence reflect his background. In this appreciation of one of the world's most athletic and iconic fish, he describes how mankind and this anadromous wonder have coexisted--the salmon rarely the better for human intervention. Despite climate change, urbanization, industrialization, and the destruction of Atlantic and Pacific salmons' habitat, Sockeye, king, Coho, among others, still live and die in great numbers in places like Alaska and eastern Russia. Kurlansky calls the salmon's fate a barometer for the planet's future. If ever a noble species needed a voice, it is the salmon; in Mark Kurlansky, it has found its champion.
