Carson, Rachel Silent Spring Non-fiction Suggested By: Movie/TV.
Rachel Carson's Silent Spring was first published in three serialized excerpts in the New Yorker in June of 1962. The book appeared in September of that year and the outcry that followed its publication forced the banning of DDT and spurred revolutionary changes in the laws affecting our air, land, and water. Carson's passionate concern for the future of our planet reverberated powerfully throughout the world, and her eloquent book was instrumental in launching the environmental movement. It is without question one of the landmark books of the twentieth century.
Carson, Rachel The Edge of the Sea Non-fiction Suggested By: Movie/TV.
By the author of Silent Spring (the anti-DDT book). Known for "catching the life breath of science on the still glass of poetry," nature writer and marine biologist Rachel Carson is an icon of environmentalism, and her first love was the sea (Time). In this book, she explores rocky shores, sandy beaches, and coral reefs, leading us into unknown worlds to catch the evanescent beauty of a tide pool and tell the story of a grain of sand, and conveys the true complexity, beauty, and wonder of marine life, both animals and plants. With an introduction by Sue Hubbell, author of A Country Year, and illustrations by Bob Hines, The Edge of the Sea serves as both a field guide and a pleasurable, enlightening read.
Carson, Rachel The Sea Around Us Non-fiction Suggested By: Movie/TV.
By the author of Silent Spring (the anti-DDT book). With more than one million copies sold, Rachel Carson's The Sea Around Us became a cultural phenomenon when first published in 1951 and cemented Carson's status as the preeminent natural history writer of her time. Her inspiring, intimate writing plumbs the depths of an enigmatic world--a place of hidden lands, islands newly risen from the earth's crust, fish that pour through the water, and the unyielding, epic battle for survival. Firmly based in the scientific discoveries of the time, The Sea Around Us masterfully presents Carson's commitment to a healthy planet and a fully realized sense of wonder.

While aimed at a specific group, the authors' advice is broad and largely unsurprising-stay in school, work your way up, be independent, parent your children, stay out of debt, be a voice for change-but the context is genuine concern and hope for the community: "black strength lies in our resolve to keep on keeping on... never yielding to the role of cooperative victim." The authors are particularly concerned about young black males, who they say are relinquishing family responsibilities in increasing numbers, largely for lack of proper role models: "A house without a father is a challenge. A neighborhood without fathers is a catastrophe."
