Abstract:

(Producer) This film combines excerpts from letters, books, television programs, and archival footage with interviews to create a vivid picture of Carson and the controversy surrounding her book. The film examines a conflict that the book brought into focus: the conflict between many who believed that technology could cure all ills and that nature could be controlled and others such as Rachel Carson who refused to believe that serious damage to nature was inevitable and represented a reasonable price to pay for "progress."
