Young adventurers Riley and Alice visit the pristine wilderness of Southeast Alaska in order to solve a puzzling salmon migration mystery: Why are Pacific Salmon thriving while North Atlantic Salmon are more endangered than ever? Riley’s daring quest for answers features moose, bald eagles, grizzly bears, and a very special guest appearance by world-renowned animal expert, Jack Hanna.

A children’s book series unlike any other, the award-winning Adventures of Riley titles feature non-stop action, wild and weird animal facts, real-life scientists, and stunning visuals that blend vibrant character art with spectacular panoramic photographs.

“A fun and entertaining book for children and parents alike. Educational and well-researched, this book will help kids learn a respect and awe for wildlife and the great outdoors. Highly recommended!” –

“Kids can easily see themselves like Riley: adventurous, into computer games, curious about the world and still frightened by it, too. The authors expertly weave a fictional story with scientific facts.” – The Reading Tub
