Product Details

Praise

“Wangari Maathai’s memoir is direct, honest, and beautifully written—a gripping account of modern Africa’s trials and triumphs, a universal story of courage, persistence, and success against great odds in a noble cause.”  —President Bill Clinton

“Wangari Maathai is the rare leader who knows how to create independence, not dependence. On the page as in person, her example makes each of us a little stronger, wiser and braver than we ever thought we could be.”  —Gloria Steinem

“Compelling…. A striking reminder that the peace award, more than any other Nobel honor, recognizes success achieved through tremendous adversity.”  —The Seattle Times

“Inspirational…. Ms. Maathai will not be beaten down.” —The Economist

“[Maathai’s] story provides uplifting proof of the power of perseverance—and of the power of principled, passionate people to change their countries and inspire the world.”  —The Washington Post
