Review

If you want to understand the climate crisis and do something about it, read this book. Nemonte's writing is as provocative as it is inspiring, a heroine speaking her truth which
is exactly what we need to hear. Had we listened long ago to these voices we wouldn't be in the eye of the storm now.

-- EMMA THOMPSON, Actor and Writer

We Will Not Be Saved is the story of the humanity and fierce determination of Nemonte Nenquimo, one of the most effective leaders for indigenous rights and environmental justice. In her gripping memoir, Nenquimo shares her journey from childhood to warrior leader, fighting the forces of greed and destruction that threaten the Waorani People and their vast, spectacular rainforest. Her story highlights the love and strength required to overcome the forces that threaten our planet. -- LAURENE POWELL JOBS, Founder and President, Emerson Collective

On one level, Nemonte Nenquimo's memoir is inspiring, moving and unforgettable; a rarely seen, first-hand insight into a childhood spent in the Amazon rainforest and the extraordinary story of her fight to save it from oil companies. On another level, this intimate and motivating book should spur action from all of us: the fight to save our planet from exploitation is something that affects us all and is the responsibility of us all. Nenquimo's leadership and example should shame those of us in industrialised countries into changing the way we live and the way we see our world. -- ROWAN HOOPER, Author and Senior Editor of The New Scientist

This incredible memoir is one of the most spiritual and mind-broadening I have ever read; the story of its warrior heroine truly inspiring and humbling. -- CAROLINE SANDERSON, Associate Editor of The Bookseller

Everyone should read this - never has a book been more urgent. Truly soul-stirring, Nemonte's book is a radical manifesto for our times. It moved me to tears. Her story flows like a mighty river, and I was utterly taken by its current. -- VANESSA KIRBY, Actor and Activist

We Will Not Be Saved by Nemonte Nenquimo and Mitch Anderson is an act of story-telling generosity unlike any other I know, offering to share with us the healing powers of the Amazon and the struggle to protect and respect her. To read this book with an open heart is to glimpse a truly other world, and come away transformed. -- NATHALIE KELLY, Actress and Activist
