Simply put, Upstream is everything you would want to know about salmon and thensome. Understatement of the year. Like the dress on the internet that no one could decide its color, the salmon is arguably the most controversial fish. Historically speaking, salmon sustained native tribes long before cooking became a rock star occupation. Politically speaking, conservation efforts clash with modern day industry. On a human level, salmon represent sport, tradition, and the environment. Salmon represent where we have been just as much as where we are going. ( )

Exceptionally well-researched and written book about salmon. Author, Langdon Cook, a gifted storyteller has interwoven an entertaining book, supporting facts on topics of ecology, fisheries, aquaculture, business models, restaurants, paleontology, Native American culture and tribes, geology, social-political issues, taxonomy of salmon, fish markets, fishing trips, anglers, etc. Who would have known that there is so much learn about salmon and their connection to us!
I thoroughly enjoyed stories of Cook's wilderness adventures, the people who were introduced to the reader along the way, and I have so much appreciation for salmon. Well done! ( )

If you were ever interested in salmon, then you need to read this book. This book covers the interesting history of the salmon and how humans have changed its future. It is well written and it will keep you entertained until you are done reading the book.
