    This book takes us on a journey up the Yukon River until it breaks into the ocean. Weymouth spent two seasons canoeing up the river. He speaks to native persons and locals and people in the fishing industry to gain a better understanding of what is happening to the biggest salmon in th...

    The travelogue is a type of writing that attracts the fellow adventurer and the envious spectator. My hope is that this book will create awareness of this cause and commit both parties to action. Kings of the Yukon serves as a homage to the animals, the people, the land, and the journe...

    Visited Alaska and the Yukon last summer. To be able to read about the places that we visited was a delightful experience, able to remember the scenery and people who make their homes along the Yukon. If you are planning a trip, read the book as you travel, you won't regret it. Well wr...

    This is such a beautiful read. Both travel writing and an exploration of the relationship between fish and man, oddly enough both aspects just as captivating. I was very fond of reading about all the people Adam meets on his trip, their habits, their ways and traditions - it's also a v...

    I mistakenly thought this was a memoir about a canoe ride up the Yukon. Since I love adventure stories, it seemed a perfect choice for me. Little did I know, I would learn more about King Salmon than I ever thought possible. I was pleasantly surprised, however, with the author's beauti...

    The Yukon River in Alaska is home to the king salmon, a fish that has been commercially hunted to the point of absolute peril and which also forms a large part of the religious and cultural life of the indigenous folk of both Alaska and Canada. (Adam Weymouth, in Kings of the Yukon, us...

    Amazing descriptions of Alaskan/Yukon Territory landscapes, Native ways of life, Western-Native interactions, commercial fishing processes, and how all these things affect the life cycle and future viability of King salmon populations. In turn, effects on the salmon disturb traditional...

    'Kings of the Yukon' is not a book, it is a journey. The author, in a canoe, has set out to try and understand the decline in the king salmon population over the years in Canada and Alaska. Paddling from the source to the mouth, some 2000 miles, Adam Weymouth, a Londoner, meets an arra...

    Only seems appropriate as I'll be canoeing 200+ miles down the Yukon this summer. Slightly disappointing. Don't worry Jack London, Pierre Berton, or Robert Service you're in no danger. ...

    Kings of the Yukon is a nonfiction book that defies classification. It serves several purposes: it chronicles the author's trip traversing the Yukon; follows the salmon's journey with stops along the way at places that count or propigate them as well as places where people catch them o...

    I was enthralled by the grand adventure described in ?Kings of the Yukon: One Summer Paddling Across the Far North.? Solo adventurer Adam Weymouth thrills us with his poetic narrative of journeying by canoe across Alaska along the entire 2,000-mile Yukon river, where he follows...

    An interesting narrative of life on the Yukon River told by someone who paddled its entire length in a canoe. Vivid descriptions of the ever changing landscape, visits and discussions with the peoples who live on the river banks and their ways of life. The peoples lives historically re...

    What an enjoyable story that gives insight into the wild Yukon River, the salmon who head back to spawn and the people who depend on both the river and the fish. Mr. Weymouth travels the length of the Yukon on a 4 month journey where he catalogs what he finds with climate change, fish ...

    Adam Weymouth recounts a 2000-mile canoe trip, from the upstream end of the Yukon River?s tributaries to its sprawling delta on Alaska?s Bering Sea coast. As a travel tale the book is first-rate. But Weymouth?s keen interest in the Chinook ? aka King ? Salmon, and his listeni...

    I learned a lot about salmon! Cool that they have an osmotic change when going from fresh to salt and back. Was expecting more of a man against nature story of a river trip. Guess you could say it is a nature against man story. Good writing. Recommend it for anyone with an interest in ...

    You can?t write about nature these days without being depressing. In Kings of the Yukon Weymouth points out all the ways we are destroying not just the salmon but the entire Arctic. Sigh. But excellent. ...

    Wonderful intro to the Yukon river. This book brought back wonderful memories of river travel in Alaska as told by my grandfather who was part of an expedition to measure the height of Mt.McKinley in 1898. ...

    This is a great read. Weymouth presents an account of the people of the Yukon and the importance of the King Salmon in their life. An important story for Alaskans to hear. ...

    Actually good about the environment (though depressing) and indigenous peoples. Just got to be more fish guts than I care for. ...

    Meandering like the Yukon - but brilliantly detailed and scarily precise about the catastrophic reduction of the salmon population. An important read. ...

    I can certainly say that I know more about salmon than I did before, and I learned it through an interesting story of a trip down a river in a canoe. This was well written and compelling in the subplots of the fight of commercialized versus subsistence fishing and the impact this battl...

    What an enjoyable story that gives insight into the wild Yukon River, the salmon who head back to spawn and the people who depend on both the river and the fish. Mr. Weymouth travels the length of the Yukon on a 4 month journey where he catalogs what he finds with climate change, fish ...

    Adam Weymouth recounts a 2000-mile canoe trip, from the upstream end of the Yukon River?s tributaries to its sprawling delta on Alaska?s Bering Sea coast. As a travel tale the book is first-rate. But Weymouth?s keen interest in the Chinook ? aka King ? Salmon, and his listeni...

    I learned a lot about salmon! Cool that they have an osmotic change when going from fresh to salt and back. Was expecting more of a man against nature story of a river trip. Guess you could say it is a nature against man story. Good writing. Recommend it for anyone with an interest in ...

    You can?t write about nature these days without being depressing. In Kings of the Yukon Weymouth points out all the ways we are destroying not just the salmon but the entire Arctic. Sigh. But excellent. ...

    Wonderful intro to the Yukon river. This book brought back wonderful memories of river travel in Alaska as told by my grandfather who was part of an expedition to measure the height of Mt.McKinley in 1898. ...

    This is a great read. Weymouth presents an account of the people of the Yukon and the importance of the King Salmon in their life. An important story for Alaskans to hear. ...

    Actually good about the environment (though depressing) and indigenous peoples. Just got to be more fish guts than I care for. ...

    Meandering like the Yukon - but brilliantly detailed and scarily precise about the catastrophic reduction of the salmon population. An important read. ...

    I can certainly say that I know more about salmon than I did before, and I learned it through an interesting story of a trip down a river in a canoe. This was well written and compelling in the subplots of the fight of commercialized versus subsistence fishing and the impact this battl...

    5 King Salmon stars to Kings of the Yukon! ? ? ? ? ? We traveled to Alaska and the Yukon Territory on our honeymoon, and I must say, I have never seen anything more majestic, pristinely beautiful, and untouched, as the Yukon, its waters, the land, the mountains. ...

    Visited Alaska and the Yukon last summer. To be able to read about the places that we visited was a delightful experience, able to remember the scenery and people who make their homes along the Yukon. If you are planning a trip, read the book as you travel, you won't regret it. Well wr...

    'Kings of the Yukon' is not a book, it is a journey. The author, in a canoe, has set out to try and understand the decline in the king salmon population over the years in Canada and Alaska. Paddling from the source to the mouth, some 2000 miles, Adam Weymouth, a Londoner, meets an arra...

    Only seems appropriate as I'll be canoeing 200+ miles down the Yukon this summer. Slightly disappointing. Don't worry Jack London, Pierre Berton, or Robert Service you're in no danger. ...

    5 King Salmon stars to Kings of the Yukon! ? ? ? ? ? We traveled to Alaska and the Yukon Territory on our honeymoon, and I must say, I have never seen anything more majestic, pristinely beautiful, and untouched, as the Yukon, its waters, the land, the mountains. ...

    I just won a giveaway for this book! Yay! I'm so excited to read this one. Sounds like it will be a book I'll really enjoy. Review coming ASAP! Update: just received my goodreads giveaway copy in the mail! Hopefully review coming soon. Well, I finally finished this book and can h...

    Author Adam Weymouth paddled thousands of miles in a four-month journey down the Yukon River in an effort to puzzle out the status and patterns of the king salmon migration. Here, he offers a fascinating account of his experiences, of the life cycle and current state of these magnifice...

    This book takes us on a journey up the Yukon River until it breaks into the ocean. Weymouth spent two seasons canoeing up the river. He speaks to native persons and locals and people in the fishing industry to gain a better understanding of what is happening to the biggest salmon in th...

    The travelogue is a type of writing that attracts the fellow adventurer and the envious spectator. My hope is that this book will create awareness of this cause and commit both parties to action. Kings of the Yukon serves as a homage to the animals, the people, the land, and the journe...

    Visited Alaska and the Yukon last summer. To be able to read about the places that we visited was a delightful experience, able to remember the scenery and people who make their homes along the Yukon. If you are planning a trip, read the book as you travel, you won't regret it. Well wr...

    The Yukon River in Alaska is home to the king salmon, a fish that has been commercially hunted to the point of absolute peril and which also forms a large part of the religious and cultural life of the indigenous folk of both Alaska and Canada. (Adam Weymouth, in Kings of the Yukon, us...

    'Kings of the Yukon' is not a book, it is a journey. The author, in a canoe, has set out to try and understand the decline in the king salmon population over the years in Canada and Alaska. Paddling from the source to the mouth, some 2000 miles, Adam Weymouth, a Londoner, meets an arra...

    Kings of the Yukon is a nonfiction book that defies classification. It serves several purposes: it chronicles the author's trip traversing the Yukon; follows the salmon's journey with stops along the way at places that count or propigate them as well as places where people catch them o...

    I was enthralled by the grand adventure described in ?Kings of the Yukon: One Summer Paddling Across the Far North.? Solo adventurer Adam Weymouth thrills us with his poetic narrative of journeying by canoe across Alaska along the entire 2,000-mile Yukon river, where he follows...

    An interesting narrative of life on the Yukon River told by someone who paddled its entire length in a canoe. Vivid descriptions of the ever changing landscape, visits and discussions with the peoples who live on the river banks and their ways of life. The peoples lives historically re...

    What an enjoyable story that gives insight into the wild Yukon River, the salmon who head back to spawn and the people who depend on both the river and the fish. Mr. Weymouth travels the length of the Yukon on a 4 month journey where he catalogs what he finds with climate change, fish ...

    Adam Weymouth recounts a 2000-mile canoe trip, from the upstream end of the Yukon River?s tributaries to its sprawling delta on Alaska?s Bering Sea coast. As a travel tale the book is first-rate. But Weymouth?s keen interest in the Chinook ? aka King ? Salmon, and his listeni...

    I learned a lot about salmon! Cool that they have an osmotic change when going from fresh to salt and back. Was expecting more of a man against nature story of a river trip. Guess you could say it is a nature against man story. Good writing. Recommend it for anyone with an interest in ...

    You can?t write about nature these days without being depressing. In Kings of the Yukon Weymouth points out all the ways we are destroying not just the salmon but the entire Arctic. Sigh. But excellent. ...

    Wonderful intro to the Yukon river. This book brought back wonderful memories of river travel in Alaska as told by my grandfather who was part of an expedition to measure the height of Mt.McKinley in 1898. ...

    This is a great read. Weymouth presents an account of the people of the Yukon and the importance of the King Salmon in their life. An important story for Alaskans to hear. ...

    Actually good about the environment (though depressing) and indigenous peoples. Just got to be more fish guts than I care for. ...

    Meandering like the Yukon - but brilliantly detailed and scarily precise about the catastrophic reduction of the salmon population. An important read. ...

    Author Adam Weymouth paddled thousands of miles in a four-month journey down the Yukon River in an effort to puzzle out the status and patterns of the king salmon migration. Here, he offers a fascinating account of his experiences, of the life cycle and current state of these magnifice...

    This book takes us on a journey up the Yukon River until it breaks into the ocean. Weymouth spent two seasons canoeing up the river. He speaks to native persons and locals and people in the fishing industry to gain a better understanding of what is happening to the biggest salmon in th...

    The travelogue is a type of writing that attracts the fellow adventurer and the envious spectator. My hope is that this book will create awareness of this cause and commit both parties to action. Kings of the Yukon serves as a homage to the animals, the people, the land, and the journe...

    Visited Alaska and the Yukon last summer. To be able to read about the places that we visited was a delightful experience, able to remember the scenery and people who make their homes along the Yukon. If you are planning a trip, read the book as you travel, you won't regret it. Well wr...

    This is such a beautiful read. Both travel writing and an exploration of the relationship between fish and man, oddly enough both aspects just as captivating. I was very fond of reading about all the people Adam meets on his trip, their habits, their ways and traditions - it's also a v...

    I mistakenly thought this was a memoir about a canoe ride up the Yukon. Since I love adventure stories, it seemed a perfect choice for me. Little did I know, I would learn more about King Salmon than I ever thought possible. I was pleasantly surprised, however, with the author's beauti...

    The Yukon River in Alaska is home to the king salmon, a fish that has been commercially hunted to the point of absolute peril and which also forms a large part of the religious and cultural life of the indigenous folk of both Alaska and Canada. (Adam Weymouth, in Kings of the Yukon, us...

    Amazing descriptions of Alaskan/Yukon Territory landscapes, Native ways of life, Western-Native interactions, commercial fishing processes, and how all these things affect the life cycle and future viability of King salmon populations. In turn, effects on the salmon disturb traditional...

    'Kings of the Yukon' is not a book, it is a journey. The author, in a canoe, has set out to try and understand the decline in the king salmon population over the years in Canada and Alaska. Paddling from the source to the mouth, some 2000 miles, Adam Weymouth, a Londoner, meets an arra...

    Only seems appropriate as I'll be canoeing 200+ miles down the Yukon this summer. Slightly disappointing. Don't worry Jack London, Pierre Berton, or Robert Service you're in no danger. ...

    Kings of the Yukon is a nonfiction book that defies classification. It serves several purposes: it chronicles the author's trip traversing the Yukon; follows the salmon's journey with stops along the way at places that count or propigate them as well as places where people catch them o...

    I was enthralled by the grand adventure described in ?Kings of the Yukon: One Summer Paddling Across the Far North.? Solo adventurer Adam Weymouth thrills us with his poetic narrative of journeying by canoe across Alaska along the entire 2,000-mile Yukon river, where he follows...

    An interesting narrative of life on the Yukon River told by someone who paddled its entire length in a canoe. Vivid descriptions of the ever changing landscape, visits and discussions with the peoples who live on the river banks and their ways of life. The peoples lives historically re...

    What an enjoyable story that gives insight into the wild Yukon River, the salmon who head back to spawn and the people who depend on both the river and the fish. Mr. Weymouth travels the length of the Yukon on a 4 month journey where he catalogs what he finds with climate change, fish ...

    Adam Weymouth recounts a 2000-mile canoe trip, from the upstream end of the Yukon River?s tributaries to its sprawling delta on Alaska?s Bering Sea coast. As a travel tale the book is first-rate. But Weymouth?s keen interest in the Chinook ? aka King ? Salmon, and his listeni...

    I learned a lot about salmon! Cool that they have an osmotic change when going from fresh to salt and back. Was expecting more of a man against nature story of a river trip. Guess you could say it is a nature against man story. Good writing. Recommend it for anyone with an interest in ...

    You can?t write about nature these days without being depressing. In Kings of the Yukon Weymouth points out all the ways we are destroying not just the salmon but the entire Arctic. Sigh. But excellent. ...

    Wonderful intro to the Yukon river. This book brought back wonderful memories of river travel in Alaska as told by my grandfather who was part of an expedition to measure the height of Mt.McKinley in 1898. ...

    This is a great read. Weymouth presents an account of the people of the Yukon and the importance of the King Salmon in their life. An important story for Alaskans to hear. ...

    Actually good about the environment (though depressing) and indigenous peoples. Just got to be more fish guts than I care for. ...

    Meandering like the Yukon - but brilliantly detailed and scarily precise about the catastrophic reduction of the salmon population. An important read. ...

    I can certainly say that I know more about salmon than I did before, and I learned it through an interesting story of a trip down a river in a canoe. This was well written and compelling in the subplots of the fight of commercialized versus subsistence fishing and the impact this battl...
