The Sockeye Mother:
To the Gitxsan people of Northwestern British Columbia, the sockeye salmon is more than just a source of food. Over its life cycle, it nourishes the very land and forests that the Skeena River runs through and where the Gitxsan make their home. The Sockeye Mother explores how the animals, water, soil, and seasons are all intertwined.
This is part of the series Mothers of Xsan. The Sockeye Mother is the Winner of the Manitoba Book Award and the Science Writers and Communicators of Canada Award.
