Title: Guarding Eden: Champions of Climate Action.
Description: Sydney Allen & Unwin, 2015. Paperback trade, as new condition, black & white text-photos. 250 pp. The personal stories of twelve ordinary Australians who were so concerned about climate change that they altered their lives to do something about it. Some did quiet backroom work in research, drafted submissions or wrote to politicians. Others decided to go public, really public - one was part of the team occupying a 160-metre power-plant chimney, one went on a hunger strike publicised around the world, another started the Lock the Gate Alliance. They come from all walks of life: there's a nurse, a musician, an insurance broker, a teacher, a lawyer, a vet. This book makes the complex and controversial issue of climate change feel human and deeply real. ISBN: 9781760112356.
