Rachel Carson: A Twentieth-Century Life

Amazon.com Rating:

Rachel Carson combined her love of science and writing in her awardwinning and controversial book, Silent Spring. Revealing the dangers of pesticide use, it brought readers a new awareness of man's contamination of the environment and ultimately led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.

"Throughout, Levine emphasizes the prevailing attitudes toward women's roles and how Carson was able to overcome those limiting expectations to break ground and become such an effective voice for environmental concerns. " -- Booklist
