A gorgeously illustrated picture book biography about Brazilian photojournalist, humanitarian, and environmental advocate Sebasti�o Salgado.

As a young boy, Sebasti�o Salgado loved exploring his parents' farm in the forests of Brazil, always dreaming of what might lie beyond his view. When he went away to school, he met L�lia, who showed him how to use a camera. As he looked through the lens, Sebasti�o realized he could use photography to capture how the world fits together.

Sebasti�o used his pictures to tell the stories of people who might not otherwise be seen. But after witnessing too much destruction, he put away his camera and returned to his childhood home. The land was in ruins.

So Sebasti�o and L�lia decided to rebuild the rainforest and photograph the beauty of the world to save it. Through art and activism, they would show that everyone was responsible for caring for the planet and that hope endures if we take action.
