Advert Description

Oxfam Shop Ulverston

Swimming in from cold currents in the Atlantic, drawn by a deep impulse to reach ancestral spawning grounds inland, Salar - the 'leaper' - is a five year-old salmon returning to the stream of its birth. 
Salar's migration through the riverways of Devon - surviving porpoises, seals, nets, fishermen, otters, poachers and weirs - is one of nature's great journeys. Intense, brilliantly imagines, the salmon's perilous return leaves us with a vivid, unsentimental picture of how both people and wildlife rely on a river and its estuary. 
Originally published in 1935, Salar the Salmon combines Henry Williamson's great talent as a writer with his insight as a naturalist.
This edition was published in 1972.
Illustrated by C F Tunnicliffe.
