Rachel: The Story of Rachel Carson

Amy Ehrlich (Author) Wendell Minor (Illustrator)
Backorder (temporarily out of stock)

Description

Rachel Carson was always curious about the world around her. As a girl she loved being outside, always exploring and wanting to know more about the universe. As an adult Rachel wrote books about what she loved--including Silent Spring, a book that changed the world.
Amy Ehrlich's lucid and loving prose, complemented by Wendell Minor's luminous paintings, tells a memorable story of the power of the word, the power of the individual, and--most of all--the importance of following your heart.
An epilogue sheds light on Rachel Carson's work and life.
