Publisher’s Description: 

As he enters his 71st year, the renowned scientist, committed environmentalist, and gifted thinker David Suzuki reflects on his life-and on his hopes for the future. Marked by his characteristic candor and passion, this is an intimate and inspiring look at one of the most uncompromising, passionate, and visionary people on the planet.

The book begins with his life-changing encounters with racism while interned in a Canadian concentration camp during World War II and continues through his troubled teenage years and later successes as a scientist and host of PBS's The Nature of Things. He describes his growing consciousness of the natural world and humankinds precarious place in it; his travels throughout the world and his meetings with international leaders, from Nelson Mandela to the Dalai Lama; and the abiding role of nature and family in his life.
