‘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.’
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.
