    I have not encountered biography in quite a long time since I viewed them as a mere interpretation of the authors of well known people However, this one was somewhat different The moment I picked out this book, I realized that this book was not about a very popular figure, but rather a vigilant young man that the world does not know much about This book is a book on the behalf of a young environmentalist, David Gypsy Chain, who early on a September morning in 1998 met an unfortunate death i I have not encountered biography in quite a long time since I viewed them as a mere interpretation of the authors of well known people However, this one was somewhat different The moment I picked out this book, I realized that this book was not about a very popular figure, but rather a vigilant young man that the world does not know much about This book is a book on the behalf of a young environmentalist, David Gypsy Chain, who early on a September morning in 1998 met an unfortunate death in the redwood forests of Scotia, California I was surprised to learn a very intense environmental war between logging industry and environmentalists as I read on this book From the way the author, Patrick Beach, narrates the story, it is easy to see the new side of the loggin industry the violent and dark side of the huge corporations Also, the narration is effective in its objective to present the environmentalist movements such as Earth First ers presented in this book in positive manner Overall, this book is great in its objective to let the world learn about less familiar case and is recommended to anyone who would like to learn about new things

    I met the author at the Austin Book Festival and the mother of the man killed was there She is a strong woman for telling this story and the author did a really good job of telling his story without pointing fingers throughout the book Eye opener.
