Replenishing the earth : spiritual values for healing ourselves and the world by Wangari Maathai( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 410 libraries worldwide
"It is so easy, in our modern world, to feel disconnected from the physical earth. Despite dire warnings and escalating concern over the state of our planet, many people feel out of touch with the natural world. Nobel laureate Wangari Maathai has spent decades working with the Green Belt Movement to help women in rural Kenya plant--and sustain--millions of trees. With their hands in the dirt, these women often find themselves empowered and "at home" in a way they never did before. Maathai wants to impart that feeling to everyone, and believes that the key lies in traditional spiritual values: love for the environment, self-betterment, gratitude and respect, and a commitment to service. While educated in the Christian tradition, Maathai draws inspiration from many faiths, celebrating the Jewish mandate tikkun olam ("repair the world") and renewing the Japanese term mottainai ("don't waste"). Through rededication to these values, she believes, we might finally bring about healing for ourselves and the earth."--Publisher's description

Un défi pour l'Afrique : essai by Wangari Maathai( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Avec la détermination et l'enthousiasme qui la caractérisent, le Prix Nobel Wangari Maathai prône de semer des arbres autant que des idées. C'est sur le continent noir que commence cette croisade. Les Africains sont aux avant-postes de la protection de la planète. Ils ne doivent pas attendre que les gouvernements ou les agences d'aide internationale interviennent pour agir. En farouche militante pour la démocratie et pour l'environnement, Wangari Maathai exhorte la population, culturellement déracinée, â entreprendre une révolution morale pour enfin accéder â la paix et â la croissance. Elle multiplie les appels â l'action en direction des Etats, qu'elle encourage â s'unir ainsi qu'à prendre leurs responsabilités. Elle, qui jamais ne renonce, offre une perspective lumineuse sur les défis que l'Afrique doit aujourd'hui relever. Le sort de leur terre est plus que jamais entre les mains des Africains
