Published in 1990, ECO-Warriors was the first in-depth look at the people, the actions, the history and the philosophies behind the "radical" environmental movement. Focusing on the work of Earth First!, Seashepherds, Greenpeace, and the Animal Liberation Front, among other, Rik Scarce told exciting and sometimes frightening tales of front-line warriors defending on Earth they see as being in environmental peril.
