    Salmon examines the natural history of the fish and looks at it from the perspectives of those who have studied it, eaten it, pursued it, fought over it, pondered its meaning and absorbed it into culture and art. This innovative biography of a species encompasses the salmon's evolutionary, ecological and human stories, ranging from Nova Scotia.   A Weird-But-True Story Takes Flight In 'The Feather Thief' Kirk Wallace Johnson's new book chronicles the real-life heist of rare bird skins from Britain's Tring Museum in Maureen.

    Atlantic salmon are found in the Atlantic Ocean near the north-eastern coast of North America, and near Greenland, Iceland and the western coast of Europe. Adults migrate up rivers and streams to spawn. There are also landlocked populations. The landlocked variety is usually smaller than sea-run Atlantic salmon.   The Feather Thief is a delightful read that successfully combines many genres – biography, true crime, ornithology, history, travel and memoir – to tell the story of an audacious heist of rare bird skins from the Natural History Museum at Tring in Somehow I managed not to hear about it at the time, but it was huge news in terms of museum collections and endangered species crime.4/5.
