Rachel: The Story of Rachel Carson

Rachel Carson was always curious about the world around her. As a girl, she loved being outside, exploring and learning more about the universe. As an adult, Rachel wrote books, including Silent Spring, considered to be the start of today's environmental movement.

"She loved the woods, built a summer cottage in Maine, wrote about the ocean, and finally published her landmark book about the poisonous pesticides killing wildlife. Ehrlich skims a few highlights of Carson's life and work, sometimes poetically. 'A transparent, elongated paramecium drifted slowly across the microscope's field. In that simple one-celled organism she saw the complexity of the universe.'" — School Library Journal
