When Hazel Wolf died, at the age of 101, more than nine hundred of her friends - from the governor of Washington to union organizers, from birdwatchers to hunters - crowded Town Hall in Seattle to honor the feisty activist and tell the often outrageous "Hazel stories" that were their common currency. In this book, Hazel herself tells the stories. From twenty years of taped conversations, Susan Starbuck has fashioned both a biography and a historical document, the tale of a century's forces and events as played out in one woman's extraordinary life.

Hazel Wolf earned a national reputation as an environmentalist and was awarded the National Audubon Society's Medal of Excellence, an honor she shared with Rachel Carson and Jimmy Carter. She laid the groundwork for a unique coalition of Native Americans and environmentalists who are now working together on issues related to nuclear energy, fisheries, and oil pipelines. She lectured and taught at schools and universities all over the United States. She lobbied Congress on irrigration, labor rights, nuclear energy, and peace, and she corresponded with a global network of environmental leaders. But for all her influence, she never held a political post higher than precinct committee officer in Seattle's 43rd legislative district, and her highest office in the environmental movement was that of secretary in the Seattle Audubon Society, where she served for thirty-five years.

This book follows Hazel Wolf from childhood to old age, a lifetime of burning with a fierce desire for justice. She saw the quest for justice as a collective responsibility. Time and again, she met that challenge head on. Whether organizing for labor rights or founding chapters of the Audubon Society, battling to save old-growth forests or fighting deportation to her native Canada as a Communist, over and over she put herself in the line of fire. "I was just there," she said, "powerless and strong, someone who wouldn't chicken out."

Susan Starbuck teaches in the Graduate Program in Education at Antioch University, Seattle.

"Here is a blueprint for activism, not for the power-hungry but for the dedicated. Starbuck's role is understated, but this historian has artfully crafted the material. Hazel is clearly something special and, happily, this book about her is, too." - Karen J. Blair, Central Washington University

Hazel Wolf could have been your grandmother. A real tomboy, she grew up with her toes in the sand of Pacific Northwest beaches and her fingers around a basketball. The working class kids of Victoria B.C. were her "gang," and the comradeship and fun they cooked up animated her whole life.
Later, working as a secretary in Depression-era Seattle, Wolf organized fledgling unions wherever the bosses assigned her. They'd fire her for organizing, re-assign her to a new job, and she would begin organizing again. Like she always did, Hazel was just making friends and having fun.
In one of the "Hazel Stories" that fill the book, sheriff's deputies tried to evict a down-and-out family from their home by carrying the furniture out onto the sidewalk. Hazel and her friends, who sometimes cared to call themselves socialists or communists, simply carried the chairs and tables back into the house through the back door. The sheriff eventually gave up.
The U.S. government tried to deport Hazel Wolf during the McCarthy period because she was a) a communist, and b)Canadian. Just like the sheriff, the feds failed, too. Hazel had thousands of friends, and she wasn't afraid of political pressure. As she said, "I was just there, powerless and strong, someone who wouldn't chicken out. Somebody always stops the nonsense all through history."
Author Susan Starbuck says Hazel Wolf knew her life would make an important story; that it might evoke the next generation of social and environmental activists. At bookstore readings, Starbuck tells prospective readers, "Hey folks, here's an owner's manual about what to do when your government runs amok." The message of "Hazel Wolf: Fighting the Establishment" is theat we, too could have fun being activists...and also change the world.

Hazel Wolf was a friend of mine and fellow board member on the Seattle Audubon Society for nearly 25 years. Susan Starbuck's book about Hazel is both highly entertaining and a very personal view of this unique woman. Susan has done a masterful job of weaving together a myriad of stories from and about Hazel into a coherent guide to Hazel's life as a dedicated organizer of social movements from her early life through her death at 101. Hazel never saw a wrong that she felt could not be righted. She dedicated her life to achieving justice, whether it was for working men and women, for jail inmates, for racial justice, for the environment or against war, often at the expense of her own personal and family life. Hazel led the way for women's independence and liberation through hard work and example without ever thinking about the meaning of those terms. At a recent celebration of Hazel's 105th birthday, Congressman Jim McDermitt and Governor Mike Lowry both said that in these times of Bush's war, we need Hazel's example of leadership more than ever.

In Hazel Wolf the intrepid determination of an irrepressible activist and feminist of the Northwest comes to life. The book captures the astute and often feisty voice of this extraordinary woman through her stories and memories. I found the book very compelling reading with its smooth progression of "stories" of a life never tranquil. As a newcomer to the Northwest, I loved getting to know this legendary woman through her own eyes. Additionally, Hazel Wolf's narratives gave me a richer understanding of the politics, environmental policies, and social history of the 20th Century. Starbuck's extensive research and painstaking ethnography impress as well; her self-effacing approach to the text fosters the impression that Hazel Wolf is speaking directly to the reader. I can imagine that Starbuck's relationship with Hazel Wolf was founded on mutual confidence and respect. Ultimately, the book inspires its reader to "act." Hazel Wolf is a spirited and gutsy woman, and anyone living in the Northwest should get to know her.

This is a great nonfiction, written with naked honesty by a woman of tremendous influence and worthiness. They seem to be related. It is one of my favorite books in the world. You really feel like it connects you with Truth. A vivid glimpse of a time in history, it's a good read.

I have just completed reading Hazel Wolf's biography by Susan Starbuck, which was published by the University of Washington Press.
