Lost Woods

£9.99

Rachel Carson’s enduring fame was secured by the publication of just four books: her trilogy about the sea and ‘Silent Spring’. This collection of her previously unpublished and lesser-known writing gives a more personal picture of Carson’s evolution as an environmental thinker. Here are both her public and private voice, bringing together youthful writing, essays, field journals, speeches, articles and letters. ‘Lost Woods’ reveals her developing awareness of the fragility of the natural world and our impact on it, and of her campaign, ultimately successful, to bring international attention to the breadth of the challenges facing us. That we are finally becoming aware of the environmental emergency is thanks in no small part to Carson’s prescient call to alarm.

Description

‘Our origins are of the earth. And so there is in us a deeply seated response to the natural universe, which is part of our humanity.’

Rachel Carson was one of the most important environmental thinkers and writers of the twentieth century. This collection brings together previously unpublished work, essays, field journals, speeches, articles and letters to create a biography of Carson’s thought: a deeply personal picture of her evolution as an environmentalist and activist.

Lost Woods reveals a profound insight into the fragility of the natural world and our impact on it, and the birth of Carson’s lifelong campaign to bring international attention to the monumental challenges facing us. That we are finally becoming aware of the environmental emergency is thanks in no small part to her.
