Scott Freeman is a biology professor at the University of Washington, where he received a Distinguished Teaching Award. He's recognized as a world authority on undergraduate biology education.

His new book is not a textbook, however. It's a look at the realities of rehabilitating a degraded fish run in what was once and old-growth watershed. It's also a look at how humans use resources over time . . . and what our history means for our future.

The book is called "Saving Tarboo Creek."
