"Love Your Mother is a beautiful ode to Mother Earth and a call to action for climate justice from diverse voices-a must-read!" --Leah Thomas, author of The Intersectional Environmentalist: How to Dismantle Systems of Oppression to Protect People + Planet

"Wrap yourself in this book like a lovingly made quilt. In bringing together these stories, Love Your Mother shows how many beautiful, powerful ways there are to do this work, and in doing so, it issues a warm invitation: Join us." --Katharine Wilkinson, coeditor of All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis

"This book is a mighty collection, a great read for anyone who cares deeply to care about Earth, community, and the climate crisis. Dr. McDuff offers up bite-size stories of inspiring climate action from across all fifty states, from a spectacularly diverse and accomplished group of women." --Leah Stokes, author of Short Circuiting Policy, and Anton Vonk Associate Professor of Environmental Politics, University of California, Santa Barbara

"Women have been at the forefront of the climate battle from the start, and this book is proof of it. If we have a fighting chance of coming through these decades, it's because of them!" --Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature

"Mallory McDuff does a beautiful job of taking us along the journey of women tackling the everyday task of living while protecting the planet and their communities. Whether mom, madre, mama, or mother-identifying person, all can find themselves within the words of each story." --Heather McTeer Toney, vice president of community engagement, Environmental Defense Fund

"Expressed in these fifty stories is a wild love for Mother Earth and her children--a love for all of us, alive together, indivisible. These fierce American voices filled me with two emotions I had not allowed myself to experience in a long time: pride and hope." --Will Harlan, author of Untamed: The Wildest Woman in America and the Fight for Cumberland Island

"Through vivid, thoughtful storytelling, McDuff's profiles emphasize a timely truth: climate leadership isn't a monolith. Matriarchs, farmers, writers, rebels, scientists, doctors, innovators, influencers, teachers--all of us, in short--have a home in this movement, if we choose to seek it." --Georgia Wright, co-creator of the podcast Inherited
