Reviews

"Of the nearly dozen books written about Pacific salmon in the last few years, this is the best and most informative."—Library Journal

"This is a benchmark book in the environmental history of the Pacific Northwest, one that breaks new ground and provides a model for future discussions in the field. . . . Everyone concerned about today’s salmon conditions in the Pacific Northwest and the importance of historical agency in environmental affairs should read this book."—Environmental History

Endorsements

"Taylor's purpose is to help us understand just how hard it is to grapple with ecological problems that are also intensely cultural and political and economic. . . . By showing us how complicated the human history of salmon has been in the past, Taylor assembles the essential tools we need for thinking more clearly about its future."—William Cronon, from the Foreword

"Making Salmon is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how the salmon crisis began and as a caution to those who think there are easy ways to get out of it."—Richard White, Stanford University

"Exhaustively researched and written in clear and graceful prose, Making Salmon . . . will prove to be the definitive study of its subject until well into the twenty-first century."—William G. Robbins, Oregon State University
