The book Totem Salmon: Life Lessons from Another Species by Freeman House is an excellent book. It tells of the heroic efforts to save the salmon and explains what the salmon represent. It is a fascinating tale of people and how much they care. Now, I read in the Chronicle of some positive results. I need to go to Muir Woods to see if we've had enough rain, so that Redwood creek has broken through to the sea so the salmon can enter and make it to Muir Woods to breed and die.
