Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrating the mystery and beauty of birds and sea creatures in their natural habitat, Under the Sea-Wind—Rachel Carson’s first book and her personal favorite—is the early masterwork of one of America’s greatest nature writers. Evoking the special mystery and beauty of the shore and the open sea—its limitless vistas and twilight depths—Carson’s astonishingly intimate, unforgettable portrait captures the delicate negotiations of an ingeniously calibrated ecology.

About the Author

Rachel Carson (1907-1964) is widely acknowledged to be America's greatest nature writer and one of the first environmentalists. Her three other books are the prophetic Silent Spring (1962), The Edge of the Sea (1956), and The Sea Around Us (1951).

Linda Lear is an environmental historian and biographer, and author of the prizewinning Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature and of Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature.
