Taking Root tells the dramatic story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangar Maathai whose simple act of planting trees grew into Kenya's "Greenbelt Movement" - a globally recognized movement for which this charismatic woman became an iconic inspiration. Taking Root details how Maathai mobilized women to rally against deforestation, poverty, embedded economic interests, and government corruption; becoming a national political force that helped to bring down Kenya's 24-year dictatorship. Taking Root captures a world view in which nothing is perceived as impossible.
