Often called the mother of the modern environmental movement, Rachel Carson rocked the world in 1962 with her book Silent Spring, which warned the American public of the impact of pesticides on the environment and unleashed an extraordinary national debate about science and safety. At the center of that firestorm stood Ms. Carson, a strong, intensely private woman who balanced her love of the natural world and passion for writing with personal strife.

Excellent! Lots of details about how her personal and family life, as well as WWII, impacted her career trajectory. I was also unaware of her literary career before Silent Spring, with several best selling books about oceans. Includes poignant comments from her adopted son, and lots of photos. Do not miss this.
