About this book

Over the past two decades, a select group of small but highly effective grassroots organizations have achieved remarkable success in protecting endangered species and forests in the United States. This book tells for the first time the story of these grassroots biodiversity groups.

The Author offers engaging case studies of three of the most influential biodiversity protection campaigns - the Headwaters Forest campaign, the zero cut campaign on national forests, and the endangered species litigation campaign exemplified by the Center for Biological Diversity - providing the reader with an in-depth understanding of the experience of being involved in grassroots activism.
