Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


David Suzuki's lifelong work as an environmentalist, naturalist, and scientist have influenced countless others in their fight to save the planet, 20 such devotees of them have contributed to this inspiring collection. These journalists, scientists, writers and environmentalists have taken their enthusiasm for Suzuki's philosophy and funneled it into their own personal recollections, manifestos, and essays:
  • Rick Bass describes his love for the Yaak Valley in Montana
  • Richard Mabey takes readers to a moonlit May evening in Suffolk
  • David Helvarg tells us of a stirring seaside memory from his childhood.
No matter what journey these writers take us on, the unifying theme of their work is always the same: a deep and abiding love of nature — inspired and shared by David Suzuki.

Book News Annotation:

In a backpack-sized anthology inspired by Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki (who said that: "The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it."), Benjamin collects 20 original essays by diverse thinkers on our relationship with the natural environment. Authors present activist credos and personal reflections, e.g., calls for improved science education and communication for 'environmental citizenship,' and Suzuki's influence on them.
