Eco Amazons: 20 Women Who Are Transforming the World [Book]

bookcover for Eco Amazons (by Dorka Keehn)Eco Amazons, released this month by powerHouse Books, profiles 20 American women who are leaders of the environmental movement. The author, Dorka Keehn, has put together a diverse group actively working across a host of issues to effect change. Keehn focuses on individuals with deep personal ties to their work, whose accomplishments merit greater recognition. Her subjects illustrate specific ways in which women can become agents for a sustainable future. Alice Waters describes her involvement with organic foods and farmers’ markets; Majora Carter chronicles the development of her Sustainable South Bronx program; Janine Benyus shares anecdotes that inspired her innovations in the field of biomimicry. With photographs by Colin Finlay, Eco Amazons provides a broad-spectrum view of the positive trends that can evolve from individual determination and dedication.”
