Having Faith: An Ecologist’s Journey into Motherhood

About Sandra Steingraber

Sandra Steingraber is a biologist, ecologist, cancer survivor, and mother, whom The Sierra Club heralded as “the new Rachel Carson.” She is an internationally recognized expert on environmental links to cancer, and her acclaimed book, Living Downstream, presents cancer prevention as a human rights issue. Her new book, Having Faith, is a celebration of human birth and a call-to-arms to address the ways our environmental degradation puts this miraculous process at risk.
