It wasn’t long ago that pesticides threatened a national environmental crisis - until Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring turned the tide. A shy, serious girl, young Rachel became a biologist when few women went to college, and grew up to be one of the most influential scientists and writers of our time. Budding environmentalists will love this biography for early readers!
