We’re excited to announce the launch of STRONGHOLD, a new book from Random House by Tucker Malarkey about our CEO Guido Rahr. It follows his lifelong journey to becoming a passionate leader for Pacific salmon conservation and a voice for protecting the world’s last, great salmon rivers. It’s an adventure story peppered with colorful characters, ranging from the cloud forests of Chiapas Mexico, to the wild braided rivers of the Russian Far East, to the upper echelons of power in Washington, DC.
The book officially hits shelves July 23rd and is available for pre-order now.

Praise for Stronghold
“This book isn’t just about fish; it’s about life itself, and the fragile, unseen threads that connect all creatures across this beleaguered orb we call home. Guido Rahr’s quest to save the world’s wild salmon should serve as an inspiration, and a provocation, for us all, and Malarkey’s exquisite book captures his weird and wonderful story with poignancy, humor, and grace.” —Hampton Sides, author of In the Kingdom of Ice and Blood and Thunder
“A crazy good, intensely lived book that reads like an international thriller — only it’s our beloved salmon playing the part of diamonds or oil or gold.” — David James Duncan, author of The River Why and The Brothers K
“Discover the bold mission to save the world’s last great salmon habitat in a remarkable account of one man who is making a difference in our time on this precious planet.” — Tom Brokaw
