A first-generation US citizen of Venezuelan descent, Peter Camejo traversed the liberal American political landscape, from the Socialist Workers to the Green Party, running for Governor of California on numerous occasions as well as being selected as Ralph Nader?s vice-presidential running mate in 2004. His life story, eloquently captured in this inspiring autobiography, is an important history of environmental activism, social justice liberalism and immigration.
Peter Camejo (1939-2008) was a leader of the Green Party and prominent social justice activist. "A first generation Venezuelan-American born in New York City, Mr. Camejo became an activist at an early age, speaking out against the Vietnam War and for the rights of migrant workers. He marched in Selma, Ala., with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King." -New York Times
