Richard St. Barbe Baker was an inspirational visionary and pioneering environmentalist who is credited with saving and planting billions of trees. He saved lives, too, through his ceaseless global campaign to raise the alarm about deforestation and desertification and by finding effective, culturally sensitive ways for people to contribute to a more peaceful and greener world. Richard was a Bahá’í and met the Guardian during his visit to the Holy Land in 1929. Shoghi Effendi became a lifetime member of St. Barbe Baker’s environmental organization, Men of the Trees (later renamed International Tree Foundation), and they continued to correspond with each other through letters over the course of many years. With a foreword by Prince Charles of Wales and an introduction by Jane Goodall, this biography is sure to inspire environmentally-conscious readers everywhere.
