Unbowed: A Memoir, by Wangari Maathai

This personal memoir is of the remarkable Kenyan woman who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001, the first African woman to do so.  Maathai began the Green Belt Movement in 1977 which enlisted thousands of women in an effort to plant trees to restore Kenya’s indiginous forests.  This movement eventually led to the broader campaign to bring democracy to a corrupt government.  An amazing achievement.
