Rachel Carson was a 20th century marine biologist and science writer, whose work on the harmful effects of the insecticide DDT helped to raise awareness about humanity’s impact on the natural world and the often-unintended consequences of scientific progress. Her published books, such as the famous Silent Spring, boosted the environmental movement in politics and continues to inform our understanding of the relationship between people and nature to this day. This book tells her story.
