This is a somewhat unusual blog post in that I am soliciting information instead of providing quasi-information.

For the past year or so, I have been absolutely obsessed about biographies. There is no other type of literature or art that has had such a deep effect on my own thinking. Reading about the journeys of interesting people is incredibly interesting and rewarding!

Every now and then, I reflect on what I read. At some point, I noticed that I had not read all that many biographies of women. This problem has now been fixed. More recently, I noticed that I haven’t really read any biographies of great environmentalists. How is this even possible?

So, where should I start? What are the best biographies of great environmental heroes?
