Rachel Carson: Voice for the Earth

by Ginger Wadsworth
 

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-- Wadsworth successfully conveys the story of Carson's life and her powerful ecological message. She is portrayed as sensitive, compassionate, and a highly intelligent girl who grew up with a devotion to her family and an ardent love of nature. The lucid and readable text traces her development as a scientist and as a writer whose literary suc, cess enabled her to leave government service and devote her energies to research. Selected excerpts and illustrations from Carson's works add to the authenticity of the book; an abundance of above-average black-and-white photographs of the subject and the natural world about which she cared so passionately complement the narrative. This biography stands up well when compared with the host of others published in recent years; in fact, it is more visually appealing than most. --Pat Katka, San Diego Public Library
