'Kings of the Yukon': Writer Adam Weymouth on his epic 2,000-mile journey

Adam Weymouth's exploration of the prized Chinook salmon took him down the Yukon River, through north-western Canada, Alaska and into the Bering Sea. The British author covered more than 2,000 miles in a small canoe. This epic journey gave rise to his first, award-winning book "Kings of the Yukon". He tells us more about writing an account of the flora and fauna of that land, as well as the rich human encounters that informed his trip.
