“The book covers aspects of Maathai’s life with clarity, explaining how she went from schoolgirl to biologist to an important environmentalist… Vibrant colors and patterns, along with people playing, working, and planting among the Kenyan landscape, create a strong look… A worthy addition to all biography collections.” - Booklist
