David C. Mahood
One Green Deed Spawns Another: Tales of Inspiration on the Quest for Sustainability
ABOUT: This book is twofold in origin: the unusual path I followed to become environmentally active brought me in contact with some exceptional individuals. Some are as well-known as celebrities; others have flown under the radar. All of them have equally distinctive stories that have inspired me and influenced my philosophy on our relationship to our habitat and fellow species. This book is a compilation of these poignant moments with my environmental heroes and friends and their insightful ideas, and a tribute to the spirit of Earth’s active stewards.

Kings of a Lonely Kingdom: Earth Day Essays, Poems,
and Musings on Nature
Available for order- August 19, 2021.
ABOUT: In his latest book, Kings of a Lonely Kingdom, author David C. Mahood shares his passion for preserving nature, biodiversity, and for combating climate change, through ten years of Earth Day essays, original poetry, and related sentiments. Throughout the book he shares compelling examples of a world in need of greater care in order to bring attention to the unfavorable, long-term consequences of climate change, and the loss of biodiversity. The plights of penguins and pachyderms, whales and wolves, minks and monarchs, and the struggle for clean energy and environmental justice are topics woven into Kings of a Lonely Kingdom. Mahood reflects on the origin and success of the first Earth Day as well as the status of its fiftieth anniversary, which also contains excerpts from a 1972 Earth Day booklet that the author wrote as a nine-year-old, fourth-grade student. The purpose of Earth Day is also expressed by members of today’s youth, from ages nine to thirty-two. Kings of a Lonely Kingdom is a combination of wit and concern and personal stories, a unique appeal for a healthy habitat for all species, and for all times.

One Green Deed Spawns Another
I am enjoying your book immensely. I’m loving reading the different stories...where people are coming from, what they’ve done. And it was fascinating to read about you, Olive Designs and your work with sustainable furnishings. You’ve been in this environmental field for quite a while, your knowledge is extensive and I’m enjoying the dialogue between you and your ‘subjects’. Definitely a good, educational and inspiring read!
This is a timely book for those who are interested in more meaningful work. An inspirational journey that reveals to us how the good deeds of others can influence us to make a heartfelt commitment towards the greater good. Enjoy!
This read is interesting, engaging and empowering as to what can be done from an individual standpoint to globally. I hope for every reader of this beautiful dialogue, a reaction, or better yet, a desire will be elicited from them if not already, to do one green deed.
Great to read your " Green Deed " book. Super work indeed. If I were still teaching Soc. & Econ., I would use it for sure! Studs Terkel would be proud of you!
I just wanted to tell you that I bought your book last fall, and read it and enjoyed it.
I have kind of an environmentalist bent, so I really appreciated and enjoyed it! I hope to get to the Beasley Turtle Rescue Center some day, and other parts of the book were also very inspiring.
I love your writing voice, and I’m definitely being educated by reading your words and those from the people you’ve interviewed. Well done!

5 out of 5 Stars
Manhattan Book Review
👉Talking about the title of the book, the title of the book is really so interesting to read.
👉The cover is appealing and attractive as well. Writing style of the author is quite appreciable
👉Kings of a Lonely Kingdom is a must read. David Mahood has offered his expertise, insight and passionate concern for our precious planet Earth and all of its inhabitants. He has cleverly shared his extensive knowledge of environment-related issues through an entertaining mix of eye-opening facts, poetry, humor, heartfelt personal stories and interviews.
Of particular interest is his treatment of the Last Wrong Dictionary, written to express his concerns about the Earth when he was but 9 years old. It’s hard to fathom that those same concerns are still his today! Mahood also shares enlightening information to “provide a voice for those who cannot speak out” i.e. monarch butterflies and sea turtles.
Booklife Review by Publishers Weekly
Mahood’s inviting approach of ruminations, verse, and interviews draws readers in, keeps them interested, and demonstrates his argument that change must be made, all while encouraging action rather than hopelessness. Readers will end with a healthy fear of the planet’s future, armed with practical inspiration on how to change it.
David has a talented way of expressing his concerns by weaving facts and personal experiences that leave the reader contemplating how to take better action to preserve precious earth for future generations. This is a read that remains on one’s conscience
Tammy Ruggles for Readers Favorite
This amazing kaleidoscope of poems, essays, and thought processes is a culmination of writings by the author since the age of 9, when he expressed his thought on the very first Earth Day in 1972, which is my favorite part of the book, along with mentions of Bruce Springsteen. He was gifted with the drive and desire to seek positive change in the environment. It's as if it were encoded in his DNA over the years. It's obvious that his passion is deep and natural, and existed long before it became fashionable or trendy.
