About this title

Synopsis:

A biography celebrates the accomplishments of the courageous environmentalist and scientist who, through her powerful book Silent Spring, changed the way people think of the environment and the world in which they live. 15,000 first printing."

Review:

Environmental historian Linda Lear does justice to the tragic dimensions of Rachel Carson's life in her prologue, which shows the author of Silent Spring, even as she was dying of cancer, testifying calmly before a congressional subcommittee whose investigation of the dangers of pesticides were prompted by her book. Lear portrays Carson (1907-1964) with affection and discernment as a remarkable woman who overcame prejudice against female scientists and aroused post-World War II America to the beauties of nature and the technological threats against it in a series of deservedly popular books.
