Alaskans have deep connections to wild salmon. Made of Salmon: Alaska Stories from The Salmon Project is an exploration of these connections, and how salmon are intertwined with our values, our families, and our deeply held hopes — and fears — for the future.
In these pages more than 20 renowned Alaska writers explore questions that resonate for all Alaskans — How do salmon fit in my life? What is our history together? How will they fit in our future and that of our state and our people?
Editor Nancy Lord weaves these essays together with additional writings from 33 individual Alaskans (including Salmon Sisters's Emma Laukitis) and photography from Clark Mishler. Their personal stories, shared with The Salmon Project over the years of our work, capture the spirit of Alaskans’ connections to the lands and seasons of salmon across our state.
More than anything, Made of Salmon is a love story. It’s a testament to the powerful connections Alaskans maintain all across the state — connections to food, landscape, ocean, river, season, culture and joy.
Made of Salmon is available in a growing number of bookstores across Alaska and online.

The Birds of Alaska print illustrates many of our most beloved feathered friends. Alaska is a birder’s paradise thanks to its diversity of habitats, location on migratory routes, and boundless wild lands. From the Arctic pack ice to the rainforests of Southeast to the windswept Aleutian Islands, nearly 500 bird species populate or pass through the Great Land seeking breeding, overwintering, resting, and refueling sites. We don't like to play favorites, but our poster couldn't fit everyone!
As American ornithologist Roger Tory Peterson once said, birds are “eloquent expressions of life and vitality.” He said, “Watching them makes you a bit more alive. And they have wings—that gives them a mobility, a freedom, we’d give our souls to have!” Consider how birds add to your life, and celebrate their graceful existence with our Birds of Alaska poster.
13x19" print comes in clear plastic covering and cardboard backing.

Alaska's mountains are majestic, arresting, and unfathomable. Their snow-capped peaks are playground for Alaska's mountaineers, skiers and snowboarders and their presence gives meaning to our work on the ocean. We fish beneath active volcanos on the Aleutian Chain, known as the "Pacific Ring of Fire," and our navigation is often based on our position to these mountains. Alaska hosts some of the highest peaks in the world, including Denali, the tallest in North America. Mountains bring pristine fresh water to our salmon streams and are home to wildlife important to our state's biodiversity.
Our Alaska Mountain Art Prints, featuring mountain ranges from across the state, are a great home decoration, printed on sturdy natural paper and 13"x19." Prints are shipped in a mailing tube, and will arrive separately from the rest of the items in your order, because they require different shipping materials.
