Book Description 
  
In his most stunningly beautiful book to date, renowned landscape photographer Robert Glenn Ketchum turns his encompassing and color-rich vision to the vast habitat and fisheries resources of southwest Alaska and Bristol Bay. With his artist's eye for color, texture, and extraordinary detail, Ketchum's large and powerful images capture the immense richness of this magnificently wild country. 
  
 
  
Framed between some of Alaska's most spectacular mountain ranges and the northern Pacific, here lies the spawning ground of the world's largest population of sockeye salmon. It is also one of the last productive wild fisheries remaining on earth, providing bountiful harvests for a host of dependent creatures-from whales to grizzlies to fishermen. 
  
 
  
Co-author Bruce Hampton provides an engaging and comprehensive essay on the life history of sockeye salmon, the region's commercial and sport fisheries, and their crucial importance to the region's environment and the people who depend on salmon for survival. Greg Syverson's intimate photographs of fish and their aquatic habitat further illuminate the text.
