Stronghold is an enthralling account of an unlikely visionary, Guido Rahr, and his mission to protect the world's last bastion of wild salmon. The reader is taken on a wild and at times dangerous adventure, as we follow him from Oregon to Alaska to one of the world's last remaining wildernesses, in the Russian Far East - a landscape of ecological richness and diversity that is rapidly being developed for oil, gas, minerals, and timber.
"An astonishing story, grippingly told, with the inspiring example at its heart of a man for whom the wellbeing of the natural world is the only goal. It is a story to counter any sense of despair. Tucker Malarkey, in one intriguing twist and turn after another, has shown that, with the application of rare talent, with luck and at some personal cost, real good can in the end be done." - Adam Nicolson, author of The Seabirds Cry
