When the struggle to save oil-soaked birds and restore blackened beaches left him feeling frustrated and helpless, John Francis decided to take a more fundamental and personal stand--he stopped using all forms of motorized transportation. Soon after embarking on this quest that would span two decades and two continents, the young man took a vow of silence that endured for 17 years.

This is such an important book. I don't know why the NYPL hasn't
added at least two or three copies
to its circulation. If the powers that
be should read this, please add a few
copies of this important book, Planet
Walker. Thank you in advance for
your help.

or two copies of this book that
was available to the public
