Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Before there was an Earth Day, before there was a global environmental movement, there was Rachel Carson (1907-64). This Pennsylvania-born zoologist and marine biologist galvanized opinion with her controversial 1962 book Silent Spring, an examination of pesticides that has been credited with the subsequent national ban on DDT. Silent Spring was a bestseller, but Carson's personal favorite among her books was Under the Sea-Wind, her first. Her sentiments didn't derive from the book's initial success: Released just a month before Pearl Harbor, this lyrical study of the shore and the open sea received sterling reviews but sold miserably. This welcome Penguin Classics reprise edition contains a fine introduction by prizewinning Carson biographer Linda Lear.
Library Journal

To assist the Nature Conservancy's "Plant a Billion Trees Campaign," which aims to put the trees in Brazil's Atlantic Forest, Penguin is rereleasing a handful of nature classics.

    The gift of a beautiful,caring, marine biologist.

    This is Rachel Carson's first and favorite book, and with good reason. A marine scientist whose articles were too lyrical for publishing in scientific journals, Rachel eventually eventually put her eco-poetry into book form. Under the Sea-Wind chronicles the life of various fish and birds who operate near the sea, and is written from their perspective. This anthropomorphic approach is beautiful, and really gives the reader a vested interest in the survival of these animals, given the knowledge how every day presents a struggle for their lives. Please bring this to e-book format!
