Rachel Carson (1907-1964) is famed for her ground breaking ecological warnings on the long-term dangers of pesticides – particularly DDT – for birds, wildlife, and humans. Her brilliance was her calm scientific eloquence that described the beauty of the natural world and her reverence for its complex ecological interrelationships. She loved the sea and understood its rhythms stretching back into millennia.
