Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter Hammarstedt and Benjamin Potts of Sea Shepherd fame and co-stars of television's Whale Wars. Enei Begaye, a Navajo/Din activist bringing green jobs to the reservation. Rob Stewart, award-winning filmmaker of Sharkwater. Jamie Henn, co-founder of 350.org. Wen Bo, founder of China's Greenpeace. Tanya Fields, an urban farmer and poor people's activist in New York City. Meet the 21st century eco-activists who are devoting themselves to saving our planet. The Next Eco-Warriors features the stories of 22 of these emerging leaders and their heroic work in a variety of green revolutions.

Emily Hunter, daughter of Greenpeace co-founders Robert and Bobbi Hunter, introduces us to the feisty and diverse global community of young people who are tackling issues of energy use, overfishing, overconsumption, waste management, the disappearance of indigenous cultures and rainforest, and other urgent environmental/social concerns with a sense of passion and possibility.

Together their message is clear: anyone can be an eco-warrior if they use their talents for change. The book will release for Earth Day, with earth-friendly promotions.
