Rachel Carson's Silent Spring

1993 Rated NR 56m

Rachel Carson's tireless devotion to nature would make her the godmother to the environmental movement. In this "American Experience" presentation, Carson's groundbreaking best-seller Silent Spring and its tremendous impact are explored. The book's focus on the dangers of synthetic pesticides -- specifically DDT -- on the environment set off an outcry that led to a ban on the substances and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.
