Pioneering environmentalist David Brower led the fight to protect the earth for the past 60 years. He turned the Sierra Club into a powerful political force, founded Friends of the Earth, and was twice nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Filmed at 84, Brower showed no signs of stopping, having recently completed a new book, 'Let the Mountains Talk, Let the Rivers Run'.

This film begins with a short retrospective of Brower's life and then moves on to an interview between Scott Simon (host of National Public Radio's 'Weekend Edition') and Brower. In this inspiring and sometimes surprising one-on-one interview, the environmentalist speaks candidly about issues ranging from nuclear power to the battle for national parks and his latest campaign for environmental restoration.

An astounding role model of persistent spirit and action on behalf of the earth is revealed.
