The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind with Amy Gulick & Nelli Williams
September 29 @ 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm PDT
The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind
Co-presenters: Amy Gulick & Nelli Williams
Intrigued that there is still a place in the world where the lives of people and salmon are linked, photographer and author Amy Gulick traveled throughout Alaska to explore the web of human relationships that revolve around these extraordinary fish. Commercial fishermen took her on as crew; Alaska Native families taught her the art of preserving fish and culture; and sport fishing guides showed her where to cast her line as well as her mind. Alaskans everywhere shared their salmon riches with her in their kitchens, cabins, and fish camps—it’s the salmon way. Gulick’s book, The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind, is the winner of an Independent Publisher Book Award, a Nautilus Book Award, an INDIES Book of the Year Award, and has been named a Best Indie Book by Kirkus Reviews.
Gulick will share stories and images from her book, together with the lessons we can all learn from Alaska’s salmon people. She’ll be joined by Nelli Williams, the Alaska Director of Trout Unlimited, who will discuss the conservation achievements and ongoing work to protect salmon habitat in the waters of Alaska, including Bristol Bay, the Tongass National Forest, and the transboundary rivers of Alaska and British Columbia.
This event is free and open to the public.
