For the centennial of the birth of Silent Spring author Rachel Carson, a new edition of her groundbreaking paean to the sea

Celebrating the mystery and beauty of birds and sea creatures in their natural habitat, Under the Sea-Wind-Rachel Carson's first book and her personal favorite-is the early masterwork of one of America's greatest nature writers. Evoking the special mystery and beauty of the shore and the open sea-its limitless vistas and twilight depths-Carson's astonishingly intimate, unforgettable portrait captures the delicate negotiations of an ingeniously calibrated ecology.
