About the Book

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes’ Field Journal (or Snqeymintn, “a place to write,” in Salish) is a lavishly illustrated field notebook supplementing Bull Trout’s Gift, the Tribes’ publication for young readers. Bull Trout’s Gift examines the sacred and natural significance of the bull trout and the Tribes’ restoration project along the Jocko River of Montana, which courses through their reservation.

Meant to inform students, nature enthusiasts, and other lovers of the wilderness, the Field Journal is the place to conveniently record one’s observations about the Jocko River habitat and can be used by nature enthusiasts everywhere to observe the watersheds in their own locales.

The Field Journal is divided into four sections: Riparian Animals and Plants, Native Fish, Observation Pages, and Salish Language Pronunciation Guide. The lists of riparian animals and plants will assist students and nature enthusiasts in identifying the plant and animal specimens of watersheds throughout the Northern Rockies. The journal also includes a detailed map showing the Jocko River’s path through the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes’ lands.

Author Bio

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes are located on the Flathead Reservation in western Montana. They have undertaken a large-scale watershed restoration project in an effort to benefit bull trout in the Jocko River drainage. An important component of this project is education and outreach, of which the centerpiece is a multimedia set of educational materials describing the ecology and importance of bull trout and its relationship with the Salish and Pend d’Oreille people. This integrated set includes the storybook Bull Trout's Gift, the Field Journal, and the interactive DVD Explore the River: Bull Trout, Tribal People and the Jocko River.
