Rachel Carson lived her life by the rhythms of the natural world. She heard when the birds started their songs and when the insects joined in. She saw the days grow short and the geese fly south. And so it was Rachel who noticed when the birds stopped singing and the spring went silent. It was Rachel who could see how the music of nature had been disrupted and who was to blame. And what she saw and heard scared her. This is the story of how a life of observation and bravery changed the course of environmental science and continues to inspire the young naturalists of today.
