Diane Honey Jacobson's latest book, My Life with the Salmon, is an important comment about First Nations efforts to save the salmon and her personal youthful journey to find meaning and a sense of place in life. Like the style in her first book My Life in a Kwagu'l Big House, Diane's style in My Life with the Salmon is full of action, amazing adventures and fascinating connections between land, water and people. In My Life with the Salmon, we follow Honey through sometimes hilarious and sometimes difficult periods but we always learn a life lesson. Readers find a first-hand account of the friendships made by a core group of environmental workers, and the working atmosphere of a community focused on saving the local salmon population for future generation. We also learn about the spiritual and economic importance of salmon fishing. Diane Jacobson is a 'Namgis First Nation member with family ties to the Mowachaht and the Mamalilakala (Mamalilaculla) settlement on Village Island.
