Carson, Rachel (L)

Rachel Carson (1907-1964) was a renowned environmentalist, who won Rachel-Carsonworldwide acclaim for her 1962 book, Silent Spring[1268],  which dealt with the dangers of pesticides.

However, it was in an earlier book, The Sea Around Us[1267], that she touched on the subject of Atlantis.
