The stories are arranged in chronological order as the author wrote them and cover the major fisheries on the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. From the super-heated decade when fishing fleets turned king crab into fortunes, to the annual circus of Bristol Bay's monster salmon runs, to the bucolic life of the open, ocean trawler, the true stories in Fishing Up North carry the flavor of the modern fisherman's life and fortunes in the waters off Alaska. In Fishing Up North, you'll Find firsthand accounts of frightening weather, good fishing, terrible fishing, great days, and sweet living from the decks of crabbers, trawlers, longliners, trollers, and gill netters. Commercial fishing's home ports, Dutch Harbor, Kodiak, Naknek, Cordova, Petersburg, Sitka, and Seattle, are classic fishing towns, where docks, bars, and even quiet living merge in colorful portraits about life on the last frontier

Salmon in the Trees tells the story of the Tongass, a 17-million acre temperate rainforest spread along the coast and across thousands of islands in the panhandle of Alaska. With some of the highest densities of grizzly bears, black bears, and bald eagles in the world, the Tongass National Forest is a place that time hasn't quite caught up to yet. Can the great forest's biological treasures withstand the modern pressures of a globalized world?

Combined with essays from renowned conservationists, scientists, and writers Richard Nelson, Brad Matsen, Dr. Carl Safina, Ray Troll, Rosita Worl, Richard Carstensen, John Schoen, Douglas Chadwick, and John Straley, Gulick's images tell a hopeful story of a rare ecosystem that still contains all of its original components and where the local people continue to sustainably manage its resources
