This lyrical, beautiful picture book tells the story of one coho salmon, Sumi, from her birth in a remote creek, to her final hours when she spawns and then dies.

"Karen Reczuch's sumptuous, detailed paintings complement the text to create an informative resource useful for explaining the remarkable natural phenomenon of salmon migration."
