Rachel Carson: Protecting Our Environment

The life story of one of the founders of the environmental movement, the author of the world-changing Silent Spring.

"Rachel Carson broke barriers everywhere she went. At a time when women were not encouraged to be anything but wives and mothers, she attended college, went on to attend graduate school, and had a full professional life. At a time when few scientists were writers, Carson wrote books that would be read by millions. In four groundbreaking books—The Sea Around Us, The Sense of Wonder, The Edge of the Sea, and Under the Sea Wind—she brought her scientific understanding to interested people throughout the world. But it was her fifth book, Silent Spring, that changed our world. In it, she sounded a warning that has altered the way the public, government, and industry behave. …Because she so strongly revered all living things, she was one of the greatest friends of the Earth."
