    " i have been waiting for this book to come out for months (the author of the librarian of basra writing about one of my heroes Dr. Wangari Maathai!)! Maathai's story is simply, and inspiringly, told. the book does a great job showing the grassroots movement of womyn, frequently versing the male power structure, growing stronger with each tree planted. the Green Belt Movement is amazing, not just for the trees planted, but for the radicalizing of womyn inspired to take a stand to save their land. the illustrations are fairly simple, but highly evocative with an inspiring environmental message. A good introduction to Wangari Maathai for the younger reader. "
