Description
The authoritative biography of the marine biologist and nature writer whose book Silent Spring inspired the global environmentalist movement. Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, published in 1962, did more than any other single publication to alert the world to the hazards of environmental poisoning and to inspire a powerful social movement that would alter the course of American history. This definitive, sweeping biography shows the origins of Carson's fierce dedication to natural science-and tells the dramatic story of how Carson, already a famous nature writer, became a brilliant if reluctant reformer.
