Rachel Carson loved nature since childhood. It was only natural for her to become one of the first conservation advocates and environmental scientists in the United States. Through detailed biography, the main content introduces readers to Carson as well as her work, including Silent Spring and its incredible influence on the United States and the pesticide industry. Sidebars complement understandable scientific content by adding interesting and illuminating information about each topic. Full-color photographs of Carson and accounts of work in the field encourage readers to care for the world around them, even if it's not popular to do so.
