In the book, Tony tells the story of FMNR: what led him to spend 17 years in Niger, the moment of revelation, the challenges of working with rural communities, how a miracle emerged from a crisis, and the global spread of FMNR today.


At its core, this is a story of hope against all the odds. In a seemingly hopeless situation, this is a good-news story that will move hearts and hands to care for the planet.


“For years I have longed to see this biography written. And it lives up to my every hope.”

“FMNR is probably the largest positive environmental transformation in the Sahel and, perhaps, in all of Africa.”


— Chris Reij, Sustainable Land Management Specialist at the World Resources Institute


“Tony Rinaudo is a shining example of what perseverance and courage can achieve. Faithfully following his calling, Tony has worked diligently to ensure that some of the world’s most vulnerable populations can enjoy food security and live a life of dignity.”


—Ole von Uexkull, Executive Director of the Right Livelihood Award Foundation
