Rachel Carson, author of the 1962 bestseller "Silent Spring," was the first American to combine two longstanding, but separate, strands of American environmentalism -- the love of nature and a concern for human health. In Rachel Carson and Her Sisters, Robert K. Musil redefines the achievements and legacy of Carson, linking her work to a wide network of American women activists and writers, such as Ellen Swallow Richards, Dr. Alice Hamilton, Terry Tempest Williams, Sandra Steingraber, Devra Davis, and Theo Colborn, all of whom overcame obstacles to build and lead the modern American environmental movement.
