Rachel Carson's Silent Spring
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.
