Stonghold: One Man's Quest to Save the World's Wild Salmon
Just finished this book and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Though, enjoyed is a strange word. Because, I simultaneously grew more saddened by the current state of not only my own local rivers, but the entire ecosystems surrounding them.
The book is more or less a biography of the president and CEO of the Wild Salmon Center, Guido Rahr. It is an inspiring story in the sense that it details how one man has done so much to benefit watersheds all over the pacific. It also shed light (at least for me) on many of the recently discovered aspects needed for healthy rivers that I didn't know. Things like the subterranean water, which I never even thought about in relation to a river's health.
It's an excellent read and I highly recommend it.
