When Maathai founded the Green Belt Movement in 1977, she began a vital poor peoples environmental movement, focused on the empowerment of women, that soon spread across Africa. Persevering through run-ins with the Kenyan government and personal losses, and jailed and beaten on numerous occasions, Maathai continued to fight tirelessly to save Kenyas forests and to restore democracy to her beloved country . Infused with her unique luminosity of spirit, Wangari Maathais remarkable story of courage, faith, and the power of persistence is destined to inspire generations to come.From the Trade Paperback edition.
