A Force for Nature - The Story of NRDC and the Fight to Save Our Planet
Publisher: Chronicle Books LLC
The pioneering environmental activist recounts his decades-long fight for our planet through the NDRC—with a foreword by Robert Redford.
In 1970, John H. Adams was fed up with the levels of pollution in New York City. How could he raise children in a place where layers of soot covered the windows? Working as a lawyer for the U.S. Attorney’s office, he and fellow lawyers teamed up to form Natural Resources Defense Council, a grassroots environmental advocacy group.
Over the years, NDRC has grown into an international powerhouse with 1.2 million members and a staff of scientists and lawyers whose mission is to safeguard the planet. This inspiring memoir tells the story of the NRDC and the environmental movement it sparked.
