Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Explores the historical, legal, and social context of Indian fishing rights in the Pacific Northwest, providing a dramatic account of the people and issues involved. The story focuses on Billy Frank and the river flowing past Frank's Landing, and details Frank's life as an activist, from legal settlements over salmon habitats destroyed by hydroelectric plants, to negotiations with the US Army for environmental protection of tribal lands. Includes many b&w photos of people and the land. Wilkinson (law, U. of Colorado-Boulder) draws on decades of experience as a lawyer working with Indian people.
