To say this is the perfect gift for the fish fan in your life is both an understatement and an assumption that you have $150 to throw around. Over two decades in preparation, this three-volume wonder from the University of Washington stands where no book has stood before, as an authoritative—and exquisitely beautiful—guide to the 260 fishes of our Northwest waters. I am sure it will be a necessity in the library of any professional in the field; for an amateur fish-lover it would be a breathtaking and treasured possession. Come by and check it out.
