Green Reeds! The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw

The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw: One Woman's Fight to Save the Worlds Most Beautiful Bird (phew! that's a long title) by Bruce Barcott. I have decided this week to spice things up and instead of featuring a book that tells you how to live green, I have chosen an exciting fiction novel with intrigue and adventure. Our main character Sharon Matola is a motocycle riding, lion-taming, monkey smuggling, Air force Veteran is determined to stop the building of a Dam in Western Belize. Fighting corrupt local officials with the Natural Resource Defense Counsel by her side. The author takes the reader on a journey with dramatic legal proceedings, the environmental downside of dams and how and why animals go extinct. For a full review of this book check out I always love a good read especially when the hero is female. It just takes a Single Green Female!
