Description
When Rachel Carson's fourth book, Silent Spring, was published in 1962, the response was anything but silent.The book aroused public anger over the reckless use of pesticides and heightened worldwide awareness of the need to protect our fragile environment.Not everyone was pleased with the book; chemical manufacturers tried to block its publication and discredit the author's research.The author of this stirring book was a soft-spoken marine biologist.Her earlier books about the sea had inspired public appreciation of ocean life.Clearly basing her writing on scientific research, Rachel Carson used simple yet powerful words to describe the beauty of the natural world.This biography details Rachel Carson's life and love of nature, from her girlhood in rural Pennsylvania to her final battle with cancer.Readers will learn from Carson's own words and accomplishments about the beauty of the earth and the urgent call to protect it.
