Summary

A fictionalised account of the life and achievements of Dr Wangari Maathai, who saved Uhuru Park in Kenya and was the first woman from Africa and the first ever environmentalist to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Wangari lives in a magical place in rural kenya where the soil is rich for planting, the trees abundant, and the nearby pond full of mysterious creatures. She drinks from cool, clean streams and plays beneath her favourite fig tree under her mother's watchful gaze.

Then Wangari grows up and goes away to school, and things start changing at home. Farmers chop down the trees. Landslides bury the stream. The pond dries up. The soil becomes overworked, dry, and unusable for planting. And people go hungry. Dr. Wangari Maathai has a simple solution to all of these problems: plant trees.
