Product Description

Rachel Carson was always fascinated by the ocean. As a child, she dreamed of it and longed to see it.

Rachel had a talent for writing and talking about science in a way that everyone could understand and enjoy. With her controversial book, Silent Spring, Rachel Carson changed the way we look at our planet.
