Let the Mountains Talk, Let the Rivers Run: A Call to Those Who Would Save the Earth

David Ross Brower, Author, Steve Chapple, With HarperCollins Publishers $20 (196p) ISBN 978-0-06-252033-3
At 82, the ``Archdruid'' looks back on a half-century of environmental activism and offers his plan for the future. Brower advocates CPR for the earth--conservation, preservation, restoration. Writing with Chapple (Kayaking the Full Moon), Brower (For Earth's Sake) reflects on past errors and successes. He recalls his years as head of the Sierra Club and its battle to save the Grand Canyon. One chapter, Forest Revolution, describes alternatives to wood for papermaking and building materials (it is fitting that this book is printed on tree-free paper; it is made from kenaf, a variety of hibiscus). Another chapter is a reprint of a piece written to celebrate Earth Day 20 years ago-- ``The Third Planet; Operating Instructions.'' A charming memoir. 50,000 first printing; author tour. (Apr.)
