9781584691167: Earth Heroes: Champions of the Wilderness

The Earth Heroes books feature the youth, careers and lasting contributions of the greatest naturalists and environmentalists in the world. This is the first in a series of meticulously researched books that introduces influential people involved in the preservation of wild places to upper elementary and middle school children. In almost all cases they were scientists as well as activists and authors. Their lives show how they shared their scientific skills and knowledge with the public to make lasting contributions to the world. This volume includes eight historic and contemporary greats: Henry David Thoreau, whose writings formed the basis for the environmental movement; John Muir, the extraordinary naturalist; Theodore Roosevelt, who engaged the government in conservation; Aldo Leopold, instrumental in creating the first wilderness preserve in the world; Richard St. Barbe Baker, who spearheaded the first major international reforestation campaign; Mardy Murie who worked to preserving huge wilderness tracts in Alaska; David Suzuki, eminent Canadian scientist and broadcaster; and Wangari Maathai, a Kenyan woman who focused on the social impact of the environment.

Review:

Now more than ever our planet needs Earth Heroes. This eloquent book takes us on a journey through the personal lives of the most renowned naturalists, describing their lasting influence on the world. The passion and profound impact of the heroes of yesterday will inspire the young to be our leaders tomorrow. --Richard Louv, author, Last Child in the Woods

Earth Heroes skillfully brings to life the lives of great environmentalists in a fresh and moving way. You can feel their idealism and reverence for life in the stories of these remarkable men and women. I highly recommend it to any parent or teacher who wants to inspire children to learn about the Earth and
to love and care for it --Joseph Cornell, author, Sharing Nature with Children
