I noticed in the Acknowledgments of the book, and from the podcast Outrage and Optimism, that Christiana’s two brothers died while the book was getting published. Her father, and brother who were both former presidents of Costa Rica, are both given credit for Costa Rica’s progressive green policies. This made me curious about the family history, which I found to be fascinating! So, for you history buffs, or really anyone interested in the origins of this remarkable family’s dedication to preserving life on this planet, I encourage you to dig into the Fugueres family history. I am not vouching for the accuracy of Wikipedia, but I think you will find it interesting!
