Organizing a strike in British Columbia’s salmon industry might have seemed like an almost impossible goal, in particular given tight timelines and the need to create an effective coalition across ethnic lines. Yet two strikes were launched more than a century ago, and the fishermen fought together, more or less, to bring about better compensation for their work.

Meggs introduces us to the leaders of each group (Indigenous and Japanese fishermen), something that helps to put a human touch on this fascinating, well-researched account of two challenging summers on the Pacific coast.
