I picked up this book recently as part of a combo meet and greet with the author and the producer of Running The Gauntlet. If you're interested in salmon politics and conservation efforts, this is a worthy book. The topic is focused on the Snake River dams and why breaching them makes good sense. The book has enough humor and light-hearted moments to make it an easy reaad while still being informative. If you're already deeply immersed in these topics, this book won't add much to your knowledge base. However, I think most of "us" would benefit from reading it. Some tidbits I learned from the book: The Port of Lewiston has never operated in the black. The health of the southern resident orca population is tied to Columbia River chinook. If anybody local wants to borrow my copy, let me know.
