Description
The Atlantic salmon is an extraordinary and mysterious fish, and in this book Richard Shelton combines memoir and scientific knowledge to reveal, from the salmon's point of view, both the riverine and marine worlds in which it lives. The former head of the Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory at Pitlochry, Scotland, as well as the author of the Guardian First Book Award nominee The Longshoreman: A Life at the Water's Edge, Shelton traces the salmon's migration over thousands of miles to its feeding grounds in the northern oceans and its return to the mountain streams of its birth.

"An absolute delight—the perfect mixture of firsthand knowledge of natural history coupled with wit, humor, and a great story. Richard Shelton is a natural storyteller, and the Atlantic salmon has a story that has never been better told.... A cracking read that no naturalists should miss."—Alan Titchmarsh
