I'd like to hear your initial reactions to Rachel Carson's Silent Spring. You may choose to respond with any thoughts you had about your parents'/grandparents' lives during the time the documentary covers (say, immediately post WWII to 1963). You may also post on any specific things from the documentary that provoked a response in you. Let's stay focused on Carson/her book for now.
PS: If you're curious about children's books on Rachel Carson, try this Amazon.com link; it goes to one specific book, but then also shows other related books.
