“Taylor’s purpose is to help us understand just how hard it is to grapple with ecological problems that are also intensely cultural and political and economic. . . . By showing us how complicated the human history of salmon has been in the past, Taylor assembles the essential tools we need for thinking more clearly about its future.” – from the Foreword by William Cronon“Making Salmon is a superb environmental history. It is hard to imagine how a book could be more timely or more grounded in the sources. This is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how the salmon crisis began and as a caution to those who think there are easy ways to get out of it.” – Richard White, Stanford University“Exhaustively researched and written in clear and graceful prose, Making Salmon forcefully presents the thesis that the Northwest salmon crisis has a long and incredibly complex history. It will prove to be the definitive study of its subject until well into the 21st century.” – William G. Robbins, Oregon State UniversityWinner of the George Perkins Marsh Award, American Society for Environmental History
