A childhood spent on the rocky Maine coast introduced Hannah Viano to the wonders of life on and by the water. A decade spent as an outdoor educator from Ketchikan to Cape Horn added the joy of sharing her knowledge and sense of place with others. Viano now lives in Seattle, where she connects to Northwest nature and culture through public art projects, education, and site-specific installations. Her first book is S is for Salmon.
The costar of Arrow's maritime adventure is the striking black paper-cutout artwork by Ballard writer/illustrator Hannah Viano, creator of S is for Salmon. Her bold, beautiful imagery captures the spirit of the Pacific Northwest and fosters dreams of journeying to the last frontier.
Gorgeous papercut images capture the whimsy and wonder of life in the Pacific Northwest -- and the magic of childhood.

I LOVE the pictures in this one. Brand new for 2015, it will make kids want to go on an Alaskan adventure. Plus, a book that ends with a skillet brownie recipe MUST be good!

Children who like the outdoors, fishing, and adventure are going to want to read this book.
—San Francisco Book Review
“Jellyfish, floatplanes, salmon fishermen and leaping whales are rendered in striking cut-paper designs and a simple palate of muted Northwest colors.
"Striking papercut art illustrates [this] tagalong adventure."
