¶ Robert Lorne Hunter (1941-2005) was a Canadian environmentalist, journalist, author and politician. He was a member of the original 'Don't Make a Wave' Committee in 1969, the committee which launced the first "Greepeace" Protest against nuclear testing on Amchitka Island in Alaska; he was a co-founder of Greenpeace and its first president. He led the first on-sea anti-whaling campaigns in the world, against Russian and Australian whalers, which helped lead to the ban on commercial whaling. He campaigned against nuclear testing, the Canadian seal hunt and climate change. He was named by Time Magazine as one of the great "Eco-Heroes" of the 20th century. This copy of WARRIORS OF THE DAWN is inscribed to Stuart Hodgson, who was the commissioner of the Northwest Territories from March,1967 until April,1979.
