Healing The Big River masterfully combines the art of visual storytelling with passionate essays. From the source, a tiny spring in the Canadian Rockies, to the sea, readers are guided on a journey back to the origins of the 1243 mile river and learn about the complicated history and impact of the Columbia River Treaty .The twelve contributing authors, a mix of first nations, tribes, and salmon recovery advocates, speak of their relationship to the Columbia and advocate for a new treaty that honors Indigenous knowledge and starts the process to restore one of the greatest salmon runs the world has ever seen.
