About this title:

Synopsis:

Senator John Kerry and his wife, the philanthropist Teresa Heinz, take an inspiring look at the ways in which individuals and organizations are working to change the environment for the better. In this inspirational new book, long-time environmental champions John and Teresa Kerry travel through America to celebrate some of the innovative pioneers, who are determined, as individuals, small groups, whole towns and even cities, to change their environment for the better. The chapters move from the Glacier National Park to the Powder River Basin, from the mesas of New Mexico to the South Bronx. It yokes together the story of what one person can achieve (i.e. the doctor who stopped the power station), to those responding to the greatest challenge of our era: global warming. The book shows how the more people gather together, the greater their potential achievement while at the same time confronting the scale of the environmental menace we face if we take no action. From Atlantic oceanographers to hunters in Idaho, toxicologists to ranchers, Teresa and John Kerry show that there is a vibrant coalition of interests determined through ingenuity, technology and sheer will power to save the world they know and love. Combining cutting-edge research with keenly observed personal experiences, it presents a picture of people determined to save their country - its flora and fauna, woods and forests, rivers and streams, glaciers and ground wells, its natural diversity and spectacular uniqueness.
