Book Review: “Kings of the Yukon”

Written by Adam Weymouth, “Kings of the Yukon” (272 pages; $27) documents the five species of salmon that swim the Yukon River each summer.  The book traces the author’s summer journey paddling the 2,000-mile length of the Yukon River, from its headwaters in northwest Canada to its mouth off Alaska’s coast in the Bering Sea. Weymouth describes the Yukon River as “the most complex salmon fishery in the world.”
