People of the Sturgeon: Wisconsin's Love Affair with an Ancient Fish

by

People of the Sturgeon: Wisconsin's Love Affair with an Ancient Fish Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

People of the Sturgeon is a history of the lake sturgeon in Wisconsin's Lake Winnebago region, told by a fascinating collection of stories on the culture, art, and science surrounding this mysterious fish. From some of the earliest inhabitants of Wisconsin, the Menominee Indian Tribe, to the spearers who flock to frozen Lake Winnebago for the annual sturgeon spearing season, people have always been drawn to this ancient fish. This is the only population of sturgeon in the world to have been nearly extirpated, then resurrected through a community-wide effort of people who are now joined together as People of the Sturgeon.
 
This audiobook version includes updates on Menominee-DNR relations; new information on sturgeon aging; wonderful music by Graminy; and definitive recordings of the mysterious sounds of sturgeon thunder.
