Riassunto: Every summer the salmon return to spawn in the streams of Kodiak Island, Alaska, and nine-year-old Alex, a native Aleut, comes here to fish with his family as his ancestors did. The abundant salmon are a source of food for the bears, eagles, foxes, magpies, gulls, and best of all, Alex's family. Bruce McMillan lived with the Shugak family at their fishing camp in Moser Bay, Kodiak Island. Here, with his Alaskan native hosts, he ate smoked salmon, salmon-berries, and tamuuq. This close-up look at another way of life in the United States will fascinate young readers. With crisp photographs and a text rich in detail, Salmon Summer captures the natural beauty of the Alaskan island and the intense bond of family and tradition, revealing a faraway place seen by few outsiders.

He often summers in Iceland, though he lives in Shapleigh, Maine. Bruce holds a B.S. in biology from the University of Maine and has received numerous awards and honors for his children's books.
