This is a first edition hardback signed by the author Dave Foreman the cofounder of Earth First!

From Publishers Weekly

In light of environmentalist Foreman's arrest in 1989 in Tucson, Ariz., on sabotage-conspiracy charges and impending trial, the title seems enticing. But these 19 urgent essays aren't exactly "confessions." Foreman, co-founder of the militant Earth First! movement, discusses his legal problems only to the extent of claiming he was framed. His aim here is, instead, to lecture on the importance of preserving and rehabilitating a disappearing wilderness. Earth is in crisis, stresses Foreman, and human hands must be restrained from mistreating the wilderness. Grizzlies and redwoods, in Foreman's realm, deserve at least as much status as humans. The author, who long ago lost faith in government protection of wilderness, seeks to restore passion to environmental groups and spur individuals to acts of civil disobedience when needed. Much of the book is familiar material but, with expected trial publicity, Foreman's important message should reach new ears.

 From Library Journal
Foreman, founder of the controversial environmental group EarthFirst! and coeditor with Bill Haywood of Ecodefense: A Field Guide to Monkeywrenching (EarthFirst!, 1985), here reflects on his involvement with EarthFirst! and why he left the group last year. He also discusses his environmental philosophy and outlines a plan to change the National Wilderness Preservation System. While believing passionately in the idea that the Earth, not humanity, is the most important reason for conservation, he offers reassessments of some of the group's more notorious methods. This is environmental philosophy at its finest and should be read by everyone who cares about the future of the planet. Although it will be considered controversial by some, it is an excellent purchase for libraries providing balanced viewpoints on the conservation movement.,
