Booklist Review: "While Rachel Carson, Al Gore, and Greta Thunberg have become recognizable names in environmental activism, there are myriad individuals around the world who've been working hard to save the planet. This guide introduces 50 of these earth protectors. Including both historical figures and still-active environmentalists, the book divides them into large job-related groups, from professional activists and community leaders, scientists, and politicians to artists, journalists, and food-industry innovators. Each short profile comprises an overview of the activist's causes and accomplishments, a few related facts, an inspirational tip, and a vibrant full-page illustration. Although the profiles are meant to pique curiosity, their real strength is in their breadth and diversity, such as Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a hip-hop artist of Indigenous Mexican descent who uses his voice to advocate for the environment; Precious Brady-Davis, a trans woman of color who uses her job at Sierra Club to fight fossil fuel consumption; and Vandana Shiva, a female physicist in India who advises governments about the risks of genetically modified food. For browsers, reluctant readers, and budding environmentalists alike."
