Description

This classic story shows the dramatic life history of one salmon from her hatching through her mating - the fulfillment of her life cycle. Haig-Brown captures the whole sweep of the chinook migration in every significant detail: the departure seaward of the millions of small fry in the spring of their second year, the saltwater life of the free-swimming schools in the deeps beyond Puget Sound, and the return and mating of the survivors.Return to the River remains one of the finest books ever written about the salmon and has won its place as an angler's and naturalist's classic. (51/2 X 81/4, 256 pages, map)
