Thursday, September 21, 2023


Salmon is more than a fish you buy at the grocery store in Alaska.

It’s intricately intertwined with the people who live there, what with fishermen making their livelihood from it, Native Alaskans telling stories of salmon with superhuman abilities and sport fishing guides sharing their love of salmon fishing with visitors.

Photographer and author Amy Gulick explored these human relationships with salmon, compiling stories and images in her book “The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind.”

She will discuss her book and talk about salmon recovery in the Pacific Northwest at 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22, at Ketchum’s Community Library.

Gulick’s work has appeared in Smithsonian, Audubon, National Wildlife and Outdoor Photographer. She has won several awards, including the Voice of the Wild Award from the Alaska Wilderness League and the Conservation Voices Award from Washington Wild.

In addition to “The Salmon Way,” she has written “Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska’s Tongass Rain Forest.” The latter was so-named for the idea that the trees are there because the salmon grow trees and the salmon are there because the trees grow salmon.

The presentation is being presented in partnership with the Sawtooth Interpretive & Historical Association as part of its 16th Annual Sawtooth Forum and Lecture Series.
