Publisher Comments:

Winner of Learning magazine’s Teacher’s Choice Award

From a small town in Pennsylvania came a little girl who saw the magic in spring fog and heard the ocean’s song in her heart. This was the girl who one day would become the groundbreaking author of Silent Spring. In this engaging biography, now updated, young readers will experience the enchantment of nature as seen through the eyes of the budding naturalist, while learning about her childhood, her accomplishments, and her passion for nature. Combining Thomas Locker’s majestic artwork with Joseph Bruchac’s poetic text, Rachel Carson offers an educational and inspiring account of her life. Includes excerpts from Carson’s work and a timeline of major events.

Joseph Bruchac, co-author of The Keepers of the Earth series, is a nationally acclaimed Native American storyteller and writer who has authored more than seventy books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for adults and children. He lives in upstate New York.

Thomas Locker has illustrated more than thirty books, many of which he has written, including Skytree, Walking with Henry, John Muir, and Hudson: The Story of a River. His books have received many awards, including the Christopher Award, the Knickerbocker Lifetime Achievement Award, the John Burroughs Award, and The New York Times Award for best illustration.
