Rachel Louise Carson (May 27, 1907 - April 14, 1964) was a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-born zoologist and biologist whose landmark book, Silent Spring, is often credited with having launched the global environmental movement.
Silent Spring had an immense effect in the United States, where it spurred a reversal in national pesticide policy.
Silent Spring remains a founding text for the contemporary environmental movement in the West and is seen as an important work to this day.
