Wangari出生於非洲肯亞,因為甘迺迪總統的外交政策而有機會到美國就讀大學,將環境保育的種子大帶回非洲。森林大面積不斷的消失,Wangari人生大半輩子都在推廣肯亞部落們的婦女植樹,並以獎勵方式讓部落們能夠大家受益,減少森林的消失。Wangari 這種堅持讓與肯亞政府與財團對立,遭受幾次牢獄之災,但是她對於森林保育的堅持卻沒有因此而削減...這就是2004諾貝爾和平獎得主Wangari Maathai,的故事。

This simply told story begins with Green Belt Movement founder Wangari Maathai's childhood at the foot of Mount Kenya where, as the oldest child in her family, her responsibility was to stay home and help her mother. When the chance to go to school presented itself, she seized it with both hands. In the 1960s, she was awarded the opportunity to travel to the US to study, where she saw that even in the land of the free, black people were not welcome. Returning home, Wangari was determined to help her people and her country. She recognized that deforestation and urbanization was at the root of her country's troubles. Her courage and confidence carried her through adversity to found a movement for peace, reconciliation, and healing. Aurélia Fronty's beautiful illustrations show readers the color and diversity of Wangari's Africa--the green trees and the flowering trees full of birds, monkeys, and other animals; the roots that dig deep into the earth; and the people who work and live on the land. Wangari Maathai changed the way the world thinks about nature, ecology, freedom, and democracy, inspiring radical efforts that continue to this day.
