First Edition. Signed by the author and the artist on the limitation page. Probably the best animal biography ever written on the life of a fish, tracing a Chinook salmon born on Santiam River, Oregon, following it down the Columbia to the ocean, then its final return to spawn and die. Wide acclaim among biologists as the best popular account of spawning and life-history of a Pacific salmon, because the author spent so much time on the rivers with professionals. Bruns H15.
