Salmon Stream by Carol Reed-Jones paperback
The reader of Salmon Stream follows the life cycle of these remarkable fish—hatching from eggs in a stream followed by a life in the wide ocean, and eventually making a hazardous journey home to their stream of origin. As in her earlier best-selling book, The Tree in the Ancient Forest, author Carol Reed-Jones uses cumulative verse—a literary technique that is not only enjoyable but suggests how interconnected salmon are with their habitat. The book also contains ample information about salmon and challenges to their habitat, as well as a list of useful resources.
