‘It is a rare gift indeed for a storyteller to be poet as much as a story-maker . . . Williamson is just such a story-maker poet.’
Michael Morpurgo

Salar the Salmon’s migration through the rivers of Devon – surviving porpoises, seals, nets, fishermen, otters, poachers and weirs – is one of nature’s great journeys. Intense, brilliantly imagined, the salmon’s perilous return leaves us with a vivid, unsentimental picture of how both people and wildlife rely on a river and its estuary.

Our new edition includes the black and white illustrations by C.F. Tunnicliffe that first appeared in 1936.

Reviews

  1. There was a super interview with the former Children’s Laureate and War Horse author Michael Morpurgo in The Independent on Sunday. The interview was a response to Michael’s wonderful introduction to our edition of Salar the Salmon by Heny Williamson, and in it he also talks about his friendship with Ted Hughes and the influence of north Devon’s landscapes on his own writing life.
