A gripping personal account, this book is written by a man who participated in some of the most publicized international environmental actions ever undertaken. Robert Hunter was a much loved member of Greenpeace from its inception, when he and 10 others sailed aboard a rusting ship on a voyage to protect Canada’s waters from nuclear testing. The brains behind iconic actions—such as dying Harp Seal pups in Alaska with red paint to make their skins commercially worthless—Hunter remained one of the movement's most fondly remembered activists until his death in 2005, despite his open and candid accounts of internal politics and interpersonal strife. This updated edition features a new foreword by the Greenpeace executive director, as well as additional photographs and an author's note.

“Amchitka and the Bomb reconstructs thoroughly the decision by the Atomic Energy Commission to use Amchitka Island in the Aleutians as a test site for nuclear missile weaponry . . . utterly disregarding the fact that the island was a wildlife refuge. It will be an important contribution to environmental and Alaska studies and to national defense studies.” - Stephen Haycox, University of Alaska, Anchorage

Driven by a need to address the issues surrounding the global extinction of ocean habitat and wildlife, Paul Watson founded the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in 1977 to take the battle over driftnetting and whale hunting to the high seas. Earth Warrior describes David Morris's journey with Watson on an anti-driftnet campaign in the North Pacific, where the author encounters action and adventure and gets a close-up view of Watson, both as a person and as one of the world's most committed environmentalists.
