    About The Book

    This is the testament of one of the few authentic sages of our time. Brower’s voice is passionate, perfectly cadenced, humorous, and very wise. And original: while most writers point to where we are, this one draws the map.?Edward O. Wilson, author, “The Diversity of Life and Naturalist”Credited with galvanizing an entire generation of environmentalists in the 60’s, David Brower, the highly respected “archdruid” of the modern environmental movement, recalls with wit and wisdom his 50 years of controversial activism and offers an inspired strategy for the next generation of “those who would save the Earth.”

    In this intelligent and engaging chronicle of his years as an agitatator for the planet, Brower points out the irony that since the first Earth Day 25 years ago, we’ve lost one-seventh of the world’s productive land to pollution, clearcutting, and pavement-and our population has doubled! From the politics of preserving the environment and how to use New York-style PR to save tigers and dolphins, to reengineering cities, the future of hypercars, and his vision for the Earth Corps, Brower takes us on a sweeping journey of what has been and what could be if we apply CPR (Conservation, Preservation, Restoration) to our wounded world. Printed on entirely tree-free kenaf paper, “Let the Mountains Talk, Let the Rivers Run” follows its own prescription for saving the world’s forests.
