Unbowed: A Memoir (Vintage) by Wangari Maathai
Unbowed: A Memoir (Vintage)

Antoinette DeMotta, May 7, 2009

I highly recommend Wangari Maathai's memoir. Reading about her life is inspiring, and the work reads like a novel, not like a timeline. Her passion to help women in her country, to aid the environment by planting trees and to stand up against crooked politicians--even when her life was at risk--is incredible.
When I finished this book, I was inspired to plant trees! More than anything I was amazed at how much one person can help in such a profound way.

This is a great gift for yourself, or someone you know who is interested in helping to save the environment.
