HEROES OF THE EARTH
There’s a new kind of hero for the 1990’s: people who are fighting to protect the environment, often at great personal risk. Each year grassroots heroes in every corner of the globe are honored with the Goldman Environmental Prize, considered the Nobel Prize of Ecology. HEROES OF THE EARTH profiles the seven Goldman winners for 1993, along with the critical issues motivating them to action: a Colombian man who is fighting to preserve a remote mountain area, home to the ancient Kogi tribe; a Native American woman in South Dakota who is battling to protect tribal lands from hazardous and nuclear waste; a Chinese woman who has led a crusade against a huge dam on the Yangtse River; a Russian who created the first environmental movement in the former Soviet Union; an Australian who fought to protect the largest sand island in the world; and two South Africans who have dedicated their lives to stopping the slaughter of elephants and rhinos. HEROES OF THE EARTH is an inspiring look at individual commitment as well as several major global environmental concerns.
