The titles in the new Women in Science series take a highly visual approach to telling the stories of important women scientists. Each title features bite-sized text telling the story of a scientist's life, groundbreaking work, and legacy in an engaging and accessible way, illustrated with original artwork and photographs. There are multiple entry points, including timelines, maps and captions. The easy-to-read text and vibrant illustrations will appeal to reluctant readers and introduce them to foundational scientific concepts. Rachel Carson was a 20th century marine biologist and science writer, whose work, including the famous Silent Spring, on the harmful effects of the insecticide DDT, helped to raise awareness about humanity's impact on the natural world and the often-unintended consequences of scientific progress. This book tells her story.
