Kings of the Yukon: a Travel Story as Deep and Wide as the Great River

By Bart Hawkins Kreps, An Outside Chance

As a travel tale the book is first-rate. But Weymouth’s keen interest in the Chinook – aka King – Salmon, and his listening skills when he meets dozens of river-dwellers whose cultures have been shaped by the migrations of this fish, combine to fascinating, awe-inspiring, and often heart-breaking effect.
