Save The Planet : An Amazonian Tribal Leader Fights For His People, The Rainforest, And The Earth

While we all dream of doing something important to help save the world's last remaining wild places, here is a story by and about a man who has dedicated his life to doing just that - Almir Narayamoga Suruí, chieftain of the Paiter Suruí tribe, and world-renowned leader in the fight to save the Amazon rainforest. Despite numerous death threats, Chief Almir has tirelessly waged a war of diplomacy with the loggers, miners, poachers, ranchers and settlers who threaten the land, the livelihood, and the very culture of his people and other indigenous tribes in the region. Chief Almir vividly tells the story of his people, the Paiter Suruí and of their travails, tragedies, and triumphs from the moment of the tribe's first contact with the west in 1969 to the present day. For the first time, his story is available in an English translation-a passionate account of his amazing achievements in rainforest conservation and an eloquent argument for the preservation and restoration of forests worldwide that he poetically terms, "the lungs of the Earth."
