Silent Spring

Rachel Carson

One of the most influential books of the twentieth century on environmental conservation, Silent Spring, exposes the decline of wildlife through the widespread use of pesticides.

First published in 1962, the chemical industry tried to ban the book using heavy-handed tactics and a dirty tricks campaign. However, Rachel Carson succeeded in creating a new public awareness of the environment which led to changes in government and inspired the ecological movement as seen today. 323 pages.
