A look at one of nature’s deadliest journeys

With a foreword by HRH Prince Charles, Norman Matheson examines the remarkable life-cycle of the Atlantic Salmon as it undertakes one of the most underappreciated but deadly journeys in nature.

From small tributaries in the River Spey, on to the food sources of the North Atlantic, the salmon’s odyssey is told in Matheson’s lively and engaging style.

His infectious passion can be felt in every word.

A Speyside Odyssey: A Natural History of the Atlantic Salmon, by Norman Matheson, published by Troubadour, £14.99
