A handsome anniversary edition of the classic environmental study discusses the reckless annihilation of fish and birds by the use of pesticides and warns of the possible genetic effects on humans, in a volume that incorporates new essays by activist Terry Tempest Williams and Carson biographer Linda Lear.
Annotation:
Carson's muckraking book, originally published in 1962, brought about revolutionary changes in laws that affect our air, land, and water, in addition, to a banning of DDT. Considered one of the most influential books of the last 50 years, according to a panel of 22 distinguished Americans including Jimmy Carter, Sandra Day O'Connor, Russell Baker, and George Will.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Her book is a cry to the reading public to help curb private and public programs which by use of poisons will end by destroying life on earth." - Lorus Milne 10/06/1996
