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.
