Editorial Reviews

Review

Salmon in the Trees is a visually stunning book that gives shape -- and voice -- to one of North America's richest natural treasures. Gulick's photographs, combined with engaging and informative essays by some of the people who know the Tongass best, offer a multi-faceted introduction to the mind-boggling vitality of this remote and precious region. At its core, this book is an invitation to one of the world's most intact and vibrant wildernesses, and an exhortation to see this extraordinary, publicly owned resource as a model for what it is: a rare and not to be repeated opportunity to get it right. ---- John Vaillant, author of The Golden Spruce: A True Story of Myth, Madness, and Greed

A great achievement in environmental photography and ecology, this book dramatically illustrates that not only have we not seen the forest for the trees, we also haven't understood the salmon, bears, and other interconnected parts of the natural world that we depend on. ----- Gary Braasch, author of Secrets of the Old Growth Forest and Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World

Salmon in the Trees is an engaging and honest chronicle of one of our most important, resourcefully rich, and internationally significant national forests. Amy Gulick captures the stunning breadth of the land, while still enabling viewers to interact with the environment on an intimate level. --Art Wolfe, photographer

Salmon in the Trees is as beautiful to look at as it is eye-opening to read. The photographs are spectacular and the essays are thought provoking. "Salmon in the Trees" is such a curious name it made me wonder what Amy could have been referring to. Read on and you'll find out and see amazing images that illustrate her points and those of the contributing writers she has collected. This is a gorgeous book that belongs in the hands of our kids learning about the world they live in (and maybe a few old kids, too). We all have something to learn from it. Our futures may very well depend on it. Nice job, Amy. I love it.

In every way, an utterly beautiful book. The narrative draws the reader into the unique world that is Southeast Alaska. The photos are sublime, and complement the verbal experience. The reader is left with a picture of a world where Nature survives intact, where Mankind is an integral part of the world, rather than its destroyer. This book provides not only an image of a present that preserves the past; it provides a format for the future.

AMY GULICK'S landmark book SALMON IN THE TREES sets a new standard in communications. It is comprehensive and allows key persons to participate and offer insight from their own perspectives. For any person who is puzzled by "connections" between salmon and trees (including man as a component of nature) this is a must read book. The photography is stunning - the writing is arresting. Hopefully this book will land on every legislator's desk who might have a role in protecting this vital area of the globe.

Format: Hardcover
Alaska's rain forest is a national treasure, and the photographs of its ecosystem in this book is incredible. Nature's beauty and interconnectedness is poignantly captured in this masterful work.

This book is a must have for any environmentalist or nature lover.

The essays in the book explore the majesty of the Tongass wilderness; however, this book weaves a greater story about the cycle of life - taught through the lessons from the Alaskan rain forest.

As a forty year resident of Alaska, I've seen many, many photo books documenting the richness of the state's natural world, and particularly that of the rain forests of Southeast Alaska. Most have been by good, or even gifted photographers, but Gulick's 'Salmon in the Trees' takes the genre to another level, by the simple expedient of acknowledging that we humans, too, are part of life here, and providing readers with a wide array of perspectives from the people who live, work, and play in the world's largest intact temperate rain forest. The photography is superb, but the inclusion of humans as an integral part of the ecosystem gives the reader an accurate picture of life in Southeast Alaska as a whole. And for that we can be grateful.

Format: Hardcover
This book shows the natural interaction between salmon, water, bears, and trees which maintains the temperate rain forest in Southeast Alaska. The Tongass Rain Forest photos are beautiful, the region scenic, and the book informative. The balance of nature is vital for survival; the temperate rainforest is a rare gem and important for helping maintain the earth's climate. This book is an enjoyable browse, as well as enhancing knowledge. Ray Troll's artwork lends a lighthearted element to learning. "Salmon in the Trees" will make you want to visit Southeast Alaska and protect it. Enjoy!

This is a beautiful book of the Tongass Rainforest in Alaska. I wish I had read it before my Alaska trip. But it was a beautiful book to remember Alaska.
