About this book

Rachel Carson's classic trilogy comprises three volumes: The Sea Around Us (1950), Under the Sea-Wind (1941) and The Edge of the Sea (1955). Under the Sea-Wind: A Naturalist's Picture of Ocean Life was the first book written by the American marine biologist. It describes the behaviour of fish and seabirds accurately, but in story form, often using the scientific names of species as character names. Carson's stated goal in doing so was "to make the sea and its life as vivid a reality for those who may read the book as it has become for me during the past decade."

Biography

Rachel Louise Carson (1907-1964) was an American marine biologist and conservationist whose book Silent Spring and other writings are credited with advancing the global environmental movement. Carson began her career as an aquatic biologist and became a full-time nature writer in the 1950s. She highlighted conservation, especially environmental problems that she believed were caused by synthetic pesticides, most notably DDT. She brought environmental concerns to a global audience through her writing, inspiring grassroots environmental movements across the planet.
