Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879238453, Paperback)In Latin "salar" means "leaper" and to the Romans who first came to England the name perfectly described the magnificent sea-run salmon that fought their way up rivers and streams.
In Henry Williamson's great nature story, Salar is a five-year-old salmon returning to the stream of his birth. He faces great dangers--cruising lampreys, poachers with their cruel nets and spears, sharp-eyed otters, cascading falls--all between Salar and his goal in the spawning sands.
"No lover of the country can fail to be thrilled. The author has the power given to few of seeing life from the point of view of the animals he describes." (Guardian)
"A rare and beautiful book that should take its place as a classic among the few that are written at once with a poet's insight and a naturalist's knowledge." (The New York Times)
