Many times in her 177 years, Big Fish has come close to death. Stalked by panners in the gold rush, nearly crushed in 1913's rockslide, almost stranded when the lake drained into the river in 1924, and threatened by a mysterious disease in the 1990s, Big Fish has somehow survived. She's led sports fishers on a merry chase, managing to escape their hooks—so far. Maggie de Vries's poetic text and Rennee Benoit's gorgeous watercolors capture all the danger and fascination of Big Fish's underwater world.
