FROM THE DESK OF RACHEL CARSON is inspired by the impact of Rachel Carson's novel, Silent Spring. Published in 1962, Carson exposed the brilliant and life-saving, but also negative impact of the pesticides on nature and challenged the many ways in which technological advances impede the health of humans and wildlife. All in all, she helped launch the environmental movement. Already a renowned nature author, Carson had also worked as a marine biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. She grew up with an enthusiasm for nature, which she held her entire life and captured in her later novel, Sense of Wonder. Click here to learn more about Rachel Carson.
