"The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind" with Amy Gulick

"The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind" with Amy Gulick In-Person

What is it like to have a relationship with salmon? 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 with these extraordinary fish. Commercial fishermen took her on as crew; Alaska Native families taught her the art of preserving both fish and culture; and sport fishing guides showed her how to cast her line as well as her mind. Amy will share stories and images from her book, The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind, and speak to salmon recovery in the Pacific Northwest based on the relationships and conservation efforts she witnessed in Alaska.

She is the recipient of the Voice of the Wild Award from the Alaska Wilderness League, the Conservation Voices Award from Washington Wild, and the Daniel Housberg Wilderness Image Award from the Alaska Conservation Foundation. Her award-winning books include The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind and Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska’s Tongass Rain Forest.
