Description

Rachel Carson--scientist, author, and environmentalist

Rachel Carson was always fascinated by the ocean. As a child, she dreamed of it and longed to see it. As a young woman, she felt torn between her love for nature and her desire to pursue a writing career. Then she found a way to combine both. Rachel had a talent for writing and talking about science in a way that everyone could understand and enjoy. With her controversial book, Silent Spring, Rachel Carson changed the way we look at our planet.

Contains black-and-white illustrations.

"Kudlinski has admirably captured the driving force of spirit of a shy but courageous woman in a succinct, respectful approach."
