Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature.
An inspired life of an inspiring crusader. A definitive biography of Carson, competent, careful and comprehensive.
“The definitive biography of one of the most important Americans of the twentieth century.”
-Edward O Wilson, Harvard University
”It was inevitable that a real biographer would come along and test Carson’s saintly reputation for feet of clay. Linda Lear has done exactly that with her exhaustively researched, crisply writing Witness for Nature, and Carson has passed the test.
-David Rains Wallace, Los Angeles Times, 9/21/97
