Description
Rachel Carson--scientist, author, and environmentalist Rachel Carson was always fascinated by the ocean. As a child, she dreamed of it and longed to see it. As a young woman, she felt torn between her love for nature and her desire to pursue a writing career. Then she found a way to combine both. Rachel had a talent for writing and talking about science in a way that everyone could understand and enjoy. With her controversial book, Silent Spring , Rachel Carson changed the way we look at our planet. Contains black-and-white illustrations. "Kudlinski has admirably captured the driving force of spirit of a shy but courageous woman in a succinct, respectful approach." -- Booklist About the Women of Our Time series: International in scope, the Women of Our Time series of biographies cover a wide range of personalities in a variety fields. More than a history lesson, these books offer carefully documented life stories that will inform, inspire, and engage.
