To Save the Earth : The American Environmental Movement, Hardback Book

To Save the Earth : The American Environmental Movement Hardback

Part of the Jules Archer History for Young Readers series



With today's climate change, our environmental problems aren't going away any time soon. To Save the Earth looks at the lives of four extraordinary Americans who fought to save our earth.

John Muir, a pioneer of conservationism, was the founder of our national park system.

Rachel Carson, biologist and author, educated our country about the effects of pesticides and chemical waste.

David McTaggart, the organizer of Greenpeace, introduced nonviolent protest into the struggle, while Dave Foreman, cofounder and former leader of the activist group Earth First!, shook up a movement that had grown complacent. The biographies of each of these figures, as well as personal interviews with David McTaggart and Dave Foreman, help us to understand the environmental movement specific to the United States.

With current issues of excessive pollution and climate change, this is an excellent resource for introducing young readers to the cause.

Upon first publication, To Save the Earth was chosen as a Junior Library Guild Selection, and now, this fascinating and important book is back in print to teach a whole new generation of readers the importance of environmental conservation and preservation.
