Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature

Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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, long-overdue biography shows how Carson, already a famous nature writer, became a reluctant reformer. It is a compelling portrait of the determined woman behind the publicly shy but brilliant scientist and writer.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [585]-609) and index.
