Horn’s second book on critical issues tackled by EDF will be published in September; a feature documentary based on the book will air worldwide on Discovery in 2017. Called Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman, Conservation Heroes of the American Heartland, it profiles a Montana cowboy, Kansas wheat farmer, Louisiana shrimper, Gulf of Mexico red snapper fisherman and the CEO of a barge company that navigates the inland waterways that connect them all --leaders of an unsung movement to protect the nation’s wildlife, rangelands, soils, wetlands and marine ecosystems. Her previous book on clean energy technologies, co-authored with EDF president Fred Krupp, was a NY Times bestseller and also a Discovery documentary.


Horn worked for the U.S. Forest Service on timber management, mine reclamation and education before becoming a journalist. She spent 15 years writing for U.S. News and World Report, The New York Times, Smithsonian and other publications before joining EDF.


Ms. Horn holds a BA, magna cum laude, from Harvard University and did two years of post-baccalaureate study in Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University. She was a Japan Society Media Fellow and in 2012 her team won the Zayed Future Energy Prize.
