From the Inside Flap:

r's courageous activism as a founder of the Greenpeace movement (and the man behind the Rainbow Warrior theme) often placed him shoulder-to-shoulder with Native peoples fighting the same "good fight" on behalf of Mother Earth. In Red Blood, this straight-talking storyteller takes readers along for a wild ride as he recounts some of his most dramatic escapades in the fight for social and environmental justice.

Hunter's adventures include a spectacular (and at times hilarious) Caribbean journey aboard the Sea Shepherd II with a group of British Columbian Indian chiefs. Their mission: intercept the Columbus 500-year commemorative fleet of 1992 and, with cameras rolling, extract an official apology from Spain for the resulting centuries of unfair treatment of indigenous peoples.

From the Back Cover:

“It’s a joyful romp through his encounters with Canada’s first nations people, spanning several decades. You’ll smile and frown and call your kids over to, ‘just listen to this.’”
