New Books Featuring Prize Winners Generate Buzz

March 29, 2012

Goldman Prize winners have been busy reaching out to wider audiences with their inspiring stories and insights. Over the last several months, three new books have been published featuring or authored by Prize winners. Here is brief look at each:

Nature’s Gift to Humanity: Natural Remedies for Selected Common Health Problems by Dr. Nat Quansah and Dr. Patricia Randrianavony. Quansah won the Prize in 2000 for his work to protect the biodiversity of Madagascar’s rainforests. The book focuses on traditional plant medicines and the importance of protecting their habitats.

Peace and Milk: Scenes of Northern Somalia by Fatima Jibrell and James Lindsay. In Peace and Milk, Jibrell provides a look at Somali life through a series of beautiful photographs. She was awarded the Prize in 2002 for her efforts to protect Somalia’s environment in the face of civil war.

Wildlife Heroes: 40 Leading Conservationists and the Animals They Are Committed to Saving by Julie Scardina and Jeff Flocken,  features Raoul du Toit (2011) and the rhinos of Southern Africa; Eugene Rutagarama (2001) and the mountain gorillas of Rwanda; and Wangari Maathai’s (1991) campaign to protect the habitat of Kenya’s safari animals.
