Praise For Girl Warriors: How 25 Young Activists Are Saving the Earth

"As I write this, the air outside my California home is thick with smoke from ongoing wildfires that are the direct result of the climate crisis. The toxic air and devastating flames make me sad and angry—but it gives me true hope to read about the phenomenal young women of Girl Warriors. Their fierce commitment to the future of our precious planet is as inspiring as it is vital. Read their stories to see how you too can be a warrior for the earth!" — Kate Schatz, New York Times bestselling author of Rad American Women A-Z and Rad Women Worldwide
