This book is twofold in origin: the unusual path I followed to become environmentally active brought me in contact with some exceptional individuals. Some are as well-known as celebrities; others have flown under the radar.  All of them have equally distinctive stories that have inspired me and influenced my philosophy on our relationship to our habitat and fellow species. This book is a compilation of these poignant moments with my environmental heroes and friends and their insightful ideas, and a tribute to the spirit of Earth’s active stewards. 

About the Book

One Green Deed Spawns Another
Dr. Mark Westneat
" I really think that if humans can’t somehow succeed in saving some of the rainforests and the coral reefs of the world that we will have failed miserably in our civilization." 
-Dr. Mark Westneat
Jean Beasley
"And then of course the other one is the awareness of our role, every single person’s role, in reversing the degradation of our planet. I see hope in that, and I think we need to stress the good things that can happen, and that there can be successes."
-Jean Beasley
Frances Moore Lappé
"I think of it as the shift from our sense of self as disconnected from one another, and democracy or government as something done to us or for us at a distance, to really believing that we are capable of true self-governance and creating rules that bring out the best in us and keep the worst in check."
-Frances Moore Lappé
Susan Inglis
"That is an important thing to teach, to reveal, to emphasize—that the real success will be finding ways of generating income there that will stay there. That does happen in making best use of the resources at hand rather than doing away with any of those resources."
