With his artists eye for color, texture, and extraordinary detail, Ketchums large and powerful images capture the immense richness of this magnificently wild country.Framed between some of Alaskas most spectacular mountain ranges and the northern Pacific, here lies the spawning ground of the worlds largest population of sockeye salmon. It is also one of the last productive wild fisheries remaining on earth, providing bountiful harvests for a host of dependent creatures--from whales to grizzlies to fishermen.Co-author Bruce Hampton provides an engaging and comprehensive essay on the life history of sockeye salmon, the regions commercial and sport fisheries, and their crucial importance to the regions environment and the people who depend on salmon for survival.

Greg Syversons intimate photographs of fish and their aquatic habitat further illuminate the text.
