Before most people had thought about pollution, Elizabeth May was an anti-pollution activist. Before most people had heard about environmentalism, she was an environmentalist. As a young girl, Elizabeth was worried about the health of the planet. She believed it was her job to protect it. "I have to do something" became the principle she lived by. Growing Up Elizabeth May: The Making of an Activist tells the story of Elizabeth's life and what motivated her to take action for the environment. Co-written by Elizabeth's daughter Cate, this book is full of quotes, art and poetry from young activists as well as tips for making change in your own community. Part biography and part blueprint for activists in the making, this book shows how Elizabeth continues to inspire young people today to stand up for the planet.
