Rachel Carson - Great American Women poster

Rachel Carson's groundbreaking 1962 book "Silent Spring" was the first to warn of the dangers of pesticides. It was fiercely opposed by the chemical industry, but the book led directly to new laws regulating the use of pesticides, and a ban on DDT. It also raised the awareness of millions to humanity's growing impact on the environment and the threats that posed to all of nature.
