Rachel Carson:
Not So Silent

by Michael F. Bishop

Rachel Carson was not one for understatement. In Silent Spring, published in 1962 and the most famous of her works, she issued a stark warning: “The most alarming of all man’s assaults upon the environment is the contamination of air, earth, rivers, and sea with dangerous and even lethal materials.”
