Rachel Carson's

Fifty years ago, the book "Silent Spring" launched the environmental movement and changed the way we think about man-made chemicals. Its impact has been long lasting and the writing of author Rachel Carson still influences people to this day. Host Frank Stasio talks about Carson and the legacy of "Silent Spring" with Linda Lear, biographer, historian and author of "Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature" (Holt/1998).
