"a tribute to our better natures"

The Guardian

From the world of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls comes a historical novel based on the life of Dr. Wangari Maathai, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning activist and environmentalist from Kenya. Wangari lives in a magical place in rural Kenya where the soil is rich for planting, the trees abundant, and the nearby pond full of mysterious creatures.

She drinks from cool, clean streams and plays beneath her favorite fig tree under her mother's watchful gaze. Then Wangari grows up and goes away to school, and things start changing at home. Farmers chop down the trees.

Landslides bury the stream. The pond dries up. The soil becomes overworked, dry, and unusable for planting.

And people go hungry. Dr. Wangari Maathai has a simple solution to all of these problems: plant trees.
