I’ve been compiling this list for over a year and finally decided to post it. It’s an ongoing list, of course, and I’d love to hear of any other suggestions from people, or your thoughts on these books.

UPDATE MARCH 2010: Added the recently-published Tree Spiker to the list.

Tree Spiker: From Earth First! to Lowbagging: My Struggles in Radical Environmental Action
by Mike Roselle with Josh Mahan
published by: St. Martin’s Press, 2009; 252 pages
