Amy Gulick in her book Salmon in the trees: Life in Alaska’s Tongass Rain Forest take. Amy writes : Streams like this one, that draw from the mossy wet ‘sponge’ of the rain forest, flow more evenly, more dependably. Shade helps stabilize and cool stream temperatures. Fallen logs form pools and eddies that break the current, giving rest and shelter to small fish, and - when channels flow hard with the swell of flooding rains - protecting the juveniles from getting prematurely swept seaward.

In the Tongass National Forest of Alaska, wild salmon provide food for many different species

In the Tongass National Forest of Alaska, wild salmon provide food for many different species. Due to the abundance of salmon, the Tongass boasts the world’s highest nesting density of bald eagles, as well as some of the world’s highest densities of both brown and black bears. Gulick’s work on Salmon in the Trees inspired her current project, which focuses on the major salmon-producing regions of Alaska and explores the relationship between the salmon and the people who live in those areas.

The recipient of an Independent Publisher Book Award and two Nautilus Book Awards, Salmon in the Trees tells the story of the Tongass, a 17 million-acre temperate rain forest fringing the coastal panhandle of Alaska and covering thousands of islands in the Alexander Archipelago. With some of the world's highest densities of grizzly bears, black bears, and bald eagles, the Tongass National Forest is a place that time hasn't quite caught up to yet. Here, millions of wild salmon are the crucial link between the forest and the sea, and shape both animal and human lives. But can the great forest's biological treasures withstand the modern pressures of a globalized world?

Salmon in the Trees is as beautiful to look at as it is eye-opening to read. The photographs are spectacular and the essays are thought provoking. "Salmon in the Trees" is such a curious name it made me wonder what Amy could have been referring to. Read on and you'll find out and see amazing images that illustrate her points and those of the contributing writers she has collected. This is a gorgeous book that belongs in the hands of our kids learning about the world they live in (and maybe a few old kids, too). We all have something to learn from it. Our futures may very well depend on it. Nice job, Amy. I love it.

I had the privilage of seeing author Amy Gulick at a photography confrence about a year ago. It was there that I was first introduced to her book "Salmon in the Trees" when images of it were shown. I was so flabergasted and amazed that I knew this would be the book to get. The story itself amazes me and her photography is just absolutely noteworthy. I'm honored to have it.

This book is full of information, imagery and unique facts. There is a great story line and impressive input from the natives.

AMY GULICK'S landmark book SALMON IN THE TREES sets a new standard in communications. It is comprehensive and allows key persons to participate and offer insight from their own perspectives. For any person who is puzzled by "connections" between salmon and trees (including man as a component of nature) this is a must read book. The photography is stunning - the writing is arresting. Hopefully this book will land on every legislator's desk who might have a role in protecting this vital area of the globe.
Loved reading this for our upcoming Alaska trip!
