Seattle-based writer Langdon Cook writes about wild foods and the outdoors. His last book, The Mushroom Hunters, won the Pacific Northwest Book Award and was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award. His work has been compared to such luminaries as Susan Orlean, Michael Pollan, and Hunter Thompson. This is the book launch for Upstream: Searching for Wild Salmon, from River to Table, which presents an in-depth and timely look at salmon—one of the last wild foods on our table. Cook introduces a variety of colorful people associated with this unique species, from Alaskan anglers to fish farm owners to four-star chefs. He discusses Salmon’s remarkable place at the intersection of nature, commerce, cuisine, and human history.
