KING OF FISH: THE THOUSAND-YEAR RUN OF SALMON. By David R. Montgomery.

2003 1st edition. 8vo (158 x 236mm). Ppxiv,290. B/w photographs, illustrations, bibliography. Orange-brown scale-effect textured paper-covered boards, spine titled in gilt.

Fascinating account of the decline of salmon over the last 1,000 years. Particularly concerned with the decline of salmon in the British Isles and the repetition of this experience in New England, and again in the Pacific Northwest. "Concludes with provocative recommendations" for retrieving the situation before it is too late. "Dave Montgomery has written a richly-informed, at times, shocking, meditation on the life and demise of salmon. No one can read this book unchanged, and, hopefully, unmoved by the passionate argument made that there is still something that can be done to protect and, more importantly, restore these silvery icons of wild rivers". (William E. Dietrich). "David Montgomery is a friend of the river. His compelling account of the plight of the king of all freshwater fish is a book all sportsmen and concerned citizens must read. The intrepid salmon has endured nature's calamities for millions of years. As Montgomery so cogently discloses, we must not allow this magnificent creature to disappear on our watch". (William J. Young III). Chapters include: History, the fifth H; Salmon country; Mountains of salmon; Salmon people; Old world salmon; New world salmon; Wester salmon rush; Better than natural; Power for the people; Rivers of change; The sixth H.
