In Letters to My Grandchildren, revered environmentalist David Suzuki draws on his experiences and wisdom gained over his life to pass on to future generations. Through inspiring letters to his grandchildren, Suzuki offers grandfatherly advice mixed with reflections from his and Canada’s past, speaking personally and passionately about their future. The book provides us with an intimate look at Suzuki’s life as a father and grandfather as he challenges his grandchildren – and us – to do everything at full tilt and to live with courage and conviction.
