Rachel Carson

While doing my weekly research I came across Rachel Carson. I started to read about her and the books she had written and was quite appalled with myself that I had never heard of her.

I am making it my mission this week to read "The Sense of Wonder", her final book. As her website states, it was "originally written as a 1950's magazine article called "Help Your Child to Wonder" and photo-illustrated after her death, details Carson's philosophy that adults need to nurture a child's inborn sense of wonder about the natural world."

Maybe I can be forgiven as she was American and I didn't study American history in my English school. Plus this book has been out of print until 1998........ Ok, I'll cut myself some slack.
