Description
 
Rachel Carson is the most important environmentalist of the 20th cent. Her “Silent Spring,” pub. in 1962, changed the course of history. Here is an intimate portrait of this remarkable writer, who taught us the meaning of ecology. Drawing from her writings, the recollections of her closest friends, and his own long association with her, Brooks has created a unique profile that shows how Carson was able to merge two seemingly divergent passions -- for literature and science -- to write some of the most important books of our time: not only “Silent Spring,” but “The Sea Around Us,” “The Edge of the Sea,” and “A Sense of Wonder.” “A unique portrait, including excerpts from Carson’s pub. and unpublished writings, and reminiscences from friends and colleagues.” Illus.
