Book Review: Holdout by Jeffrey Kluger
When an accident triggers an evacuation of the International Space Station, one of the astronauts decides to stay behind. Ignoring protocol and direct orders, Walli Beckwith remains on board and is soon branded a traitor and a pirate. Using her new-found notoriety to shine a spotlight on the wholesale destruction of the Amazon rainforest, her status soon changes to folk-hero.
