Description: Born in the tumbling, oxygen-rich waters of a Pacific Coast stream, Salgair quickly learns about survival of the fittest.

This story is presented to the young who are interested in how the lifecycle of a steelhead salmon works. Waylaying the usual point-form facts, this title is designed to encourage the future fisherpersons, biologists and conservationists to learn what obstacles and adventures a steelhead trout must go through to complete his life cycle.
