Description

The life of the salmon is a predictable one: swimming upstream to the place of its birth to spawn, and then to die.This is the story of a salmon whose silver scales mark him out as different - who dares to leap beyond his fate. It's a story about growing up, and about aching and ardent love. For swimming upstream means pursuing something the salmon cannot see: a dream.Translated for the first time into English, The Salmon Who Dared to Leap Higher is a wise, tender and inspiring modern fable about finding freedom and a harmony with nature we have either forgotten or lost in the binding realities of life.
