Peter Willcox has been a Captain with Greenpeace for over 30 years, making him the most experienced captain in the organization. An activist for nearly his entire life, beginning by marching in Selma behind Martin Luther King Jr. with his family at age twelve. Captain Willcox estimates he’s sailed over 300,000 miles in virtually every corner of the globe.
Our library reading panel really enjoyed Greenpeace Captain – here are some of their comments:
“This was written in an easy style and I know much more about the politics of environmental campaigning than I did. Peter is obviously passionate about his job and that came across.”
“I was pleasantly surprised by this book – I was presented with an intelligent, factual account of one man’s courageousness in the face of governments and companies determined to put profit over our wellbeing. As soon as I read the quote at the beginning, I knew he had a sense of humour and this came through in his writing. Willcox describes his adventures in a down-to-earth manner (no pun intended!) yet his devotion to the cause of Greenpeace is evident in his commitment to the activities and projects.”
