The environment, and the movement that grew up to protect it, is under attack—concerted and purposeful. Yet the need for solutions to pressing environmental problems grows more urgent each day. Teresa Heinz Kerry and Senator John Kerry describe how these issues unite people across party and ideological lines. From the San Juan Basin to the Gulf of Mexico to the South Bronx, from mothers on Cape Cod to Colorado ranchers, they found a vibrant coalition of people and communities deploying ingenuity, technology, and sheer will power to save the world they know and love. Now, in this passionate and personal book, Senator John Kerry and Teresa Heinz Kerry shine the spotlight on an inspiring crosssection of these new environmental pioneers.

The book combines intensive research with keenly observed personal experiences to present a portrait of Americans devoted to the natural diversity and spectacular uniqueness of our country. It also includes an extensive guide on where and how readers can get involved.

About the Author:

John Kerry has served four terms as Senator from Massachusetts. As ranking member and Chairman of the Fish and Marine subcommittee, he was able to write or rewrite laws affecting national fisheries, flood insurance, marine mammals, coral reefs, the Gulf of Mexico dead zone and to engage very directly in the battles over global climate change, alternative and renewable fuels and fuel efficiency standards.

Teresa Heinz Kerry is chairman of The Howard Heinz Endowment and the Heinz Family Philanthropies, and a winner of the Albert Schweitzer Gold Medal for Humanitarianism for her work protecting the environment, promoting health care and education and uplifting women and children throughout the world.

From AudioFile:

John Kerry and Teresa Heinz Kerry introduce their environmental policies by providing examples of the dangers facing the environment and the solutions that concerned people have found. They also criticize President Bush's policies at the same time. The Kerrys don't narrate their own book, a decision that disappoints in two respects. First, listeners don't get the chance to hear how potential presidential candidate John Kerry presents his views in the longer form of an audiobook. Second, Dick Hill overemotes at times, making the criticisms less effective. While emphatic, Hill's narration isn't the stirring call to action that the Kerrys intended. This presentation doesn't give the Kerrys' position its best possible showcase. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
