From a small town in Pennsylvania came a little girl who saw the magic in spring fog and heard the ocean's song in her heart. This was the girl who one day would become the groundbreaking author of Silent Spring. In this engaging biography, now updated, young readers will experience the enchantment of nature as seen through the eyes of the budding naturalist, while learning about her childhood, her accomplishments, and her passion for nature. Combining Thomas Locker's majestic artwork with Joseph Bruchac's poetic text, Rachel Carson offers an educational and inspiring account of her life.
