Will wild salmon still be swimming a decade from now? This is what author and journalist Langdon Cook sets out to discover, as he travels every stage of the salmon pipeline, from Alaskan spawning grounds and Columbia River hatcheries to chefs' frying pans and 4-star restaurant menus. Upstream interweaves nature, commerce, cuisine, adventure, and the environmental impact on how we consume this once seemingly limitless food source.

Langdon Cook is the author of Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager, which The Seattle Times called “lyrical, practical and quixotic.” Cook has been profiled on the Travel Channel, in Bon Appetit, WSJ magazine, Whole Living, and Salon.com, and his writing has appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers, including Sunset, Gray’s Sporting Journal, and Outside. He is also a columnist for Seattle magazine and has been the recipient of many grants and awards. He lives in Seattle with his wife and two children.
