Since shortly after the first Earth Day in 1970, Tamra Peters has sought to protect the Earth, working with organizations like the Nature Conservancy and Rainforest Action Network. In her wonderfully told story of having minor surgery as an outpatient, Tamra captures the pain and fear of being treated by the doctor merely as a slab of meat. Shaking with emotion, trembling with fear, she will uncover, in the aftermath of this event, a deeper understanding of the disregard with which we treat the body of the Earth. It is a story that truly brings home what it is to not care for our beloved planet. An earth advocate, a powerful activist, Tamra is founder of Resilient Neighborhoods, an organization that helps teams of people to get on a low carbon diet.
