This thrilling story of the Chinook salmon beautifully illustrates nature’s circle and the cycle of life. The story of the Chinook salmon is nothing less than a miracle of nature. She hatches from a tiny pearl-colored egg and begins her adventure – a 10,000-mile journey from the gravel bed of Caribou Creek to the Pacific and back.
