Description

The biography of the ecologist and nature writer whose book "Silent Spring" began a movement that transformed the way we understand ourselves and the living world. Carson blew the whistle on the petro-chemical industry at a time when pesticides were regarded as a miracle cure all. When "Silent Spring" appeared in 1962 it did more than any single publication or event to alert the world to the hazards of enviromental pollution.
