Laura A. Guertin - Wangari Maathai, Penn State Brandywine

Book Title: Unbowed

Author: Wangari Maathai

Book Description:

Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai details the challenges and successes in her life as she fights for political reform, for women, and for the environment. She is one of my personal heroes, as her actions not only improve conditions in her homeland of Kenya but all across the globe. From encouraging people to vote, to planting trees through her Green Belt Movement, Maathai shows us all what can be accomplished with the passion and desire to make a positive change.
