Rainbow Warriors
Legendary Stories from Greenpeace Ships

Following the lives of the three ships with the name Rainbow Warrior, this book, written by long-serving Greenpeace activist Maite Mompo, tells the inside stories of life on board and recounts some of the ships' most exciting adventures and actions.

It is at once a narrative of life on board, a history of some of the most famous vessels in the world and a history of Greenpeace that goes beyond the oceans and touches on many aspects of the organization's work. In the end though it aims to bring out the personal stories and first hand accounts of the ships' adventures - tales from the high seas, full of action, daring, humanity and great compassion.

Starting with the early life of Greenpeace and the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior I by the French secret service through to the imprisonment of the Arctic 30 by the Russians, the stories are brought to life with maps and photos from Greenpeace archives and the author's and other crewmembers' personal photos.

About the Author

Maite Mompo has been a Greenpeace activist for over 10 years. With the sea in her blood she started sailing on a small boat, the Zorba, and then moved on to crew for the Arctic Sunrise, Esperanza and Rainbow Warrior. Spending half her year at sea, she has sailed from pole to pole, taken part in numerous actions and has put herself 'between the harpoon and the whale'.
