Abstract:

Rachel Carson & rsquo;s National Book Award & ndash;winning classic effortlessly mingles detailed fieldwork and inspiring prose to reveal a deep understanding of the earth & rsquo;s most precious, mysterious resource & mdash;the ocean With more than one million copies sold, Rachel Carson & rsquo;s The Sea Around Us became a cultural phenomenon when first published in 1951 and cemented Carson & rsquo;s status as the preeminent natural history writer of her time. Her inspiring, intimate writing plumbs the depths of an enigmatic world & mdash;a place of hidden lands, islands newly risen from the earth & rsquo;s crust, fish that pour through the water, and the unyielding, epic battle for survival. Firmly based in the scientific discoveries of the time, The Sea Around Us masterfully presents Carson & rsquo;s commitment to a healthy planet and a fully realized sense of wonder. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Rachel Carson including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University.
