About the Book

A beautifully illustrated picture book that reveals the magical relationship between the sea and the land and all of life.

One fall day, Kate goes with her father to a river in the Pacific rain forest, which Kate's dad calls the salmon forest. Together they watch the sockeye salmon returning to the river to spawn and along the way they run into a Native boy named Brett and his family fishing at a pool in the river. They watch as Brett's mother and sister clean the salmon that Brett and his dad have caught and find out the many ways the family prepares salmon. Kate discovers how the forest and the salmon need each other and why the forest is called the salmon forest.

David Suzuki's and Sarah Ellis's charming and informative text is accompanied by Sheena Lott's exquisite watercolours, which magically evoke the spirit and mystery of the West Coast rain forest. Together, text and illustrations illuminate the interconnectedness of the forest and the sea and of all life.
