Born in a rural village in 1940, she was already an iconoclast as a child, determined to get an education even though most girls were uneducated. We see her become the first woman both in East and Central Africa to earn a PhD and to head a university department in Kenya.

We witness her numerous run-ins with the brutal Moi government- the establishment, in 1977, of the Green Belt Movement, which spread from Kenya across Africa and which helps restore indigenous forests while assisting rural women by paying them to plant trees in their villages- and how her courage and determination helped transform Kenyas government into the democracy in which she now serves.--From publisher description.
