5 King Salmon stars to Kings of the Yukon! 🐟 🐟 🐟 🐟 🐟
We traveled to Alaska and the Yukon Territory on our honeymoon, and I must say, I have never seen anything more majestic, pristinely beautiful, and untouched, as the Yukon, its waters, the land, the mountains.
In Kings of the Yukon, Adam Weymouth weaves a tale of adventure, his own in fact, as he travels the Yukon River by canoe in order to study the migration patterns of the king salmon, also including the history of the fish.
But this book isn’t just about salmon…Weymouth shows the connection between the people of Alaska and fish by painting descriptive vignettes of the characters he meets along his journey.
I found the writing to be as stunning, intriguing, and pristine as the Yukon. Well-done, Adam Weymouth!
Thank you to Adam Weymouth, Little, Brown and Company, and Netgalley. Kings of the Yukon will be available on May 15, 2018.
