Description


A timely and inspiring nonfiction guide for middle grade listeners about the history of our fight against climate change, and how young people today are rising to action.

Inspired by Nathaniel Rich’s Losing Earth: A Recent History, the acclaimed book that grew out of an August 2018 issue of the New York Times Magazine soley dedicated to it, Saving Earth tells the human story of the climate change conversation from the recent past into the present day. It wrestles with the long shadow of our failures, what might be ahead for today’s generation, and crucial questions of how we understand the world we live in—and how we can work together to change the outlook for the better. Filled with the voices of climate activists from the past and present, this audiobook is both a call to action and a riveting dramatic history.

A Macmillan Audio production from Farrar, Straus and Giroux
