Inhaltsangabe: The first book to be based on Rachel Carson's papers, THE HOUSE OF LIFE is at once a literary biography and a reader. A very private person, Rachel Carson, who died in 1964, left no formal statement about her life and work. But from her personal and professional correspondence, from speeches and interviews, and from the recollections of her closest friends, it has been possible to depict her career to a large extend in her own words. THE HOUSE OF LIFE begins with a detailed discussion of her achievements as a writer. It traces her early struggles, her disappointments and her triumphs, leading at least to her emergence as the most eloquent spokesperson for conservation in our time. Among the selections from her work are "Undersea," her first essay published in a national magazine; key passages from her first and least-known book, UNDER THE SEA-WIND; unpublished sketches; an account of a trip on a fishing trawler to the Grand banks; and of course passages from THE SEA AROUND US, THE EDGE OF THE SEA, SILENT SPRING and THE SENSE OF WONDER. Paul Brooks gives the reader an inside view of the whole dramatic story of the writing and publishing of SILENT SPRING, including the obstacles that the author had to surmount and the courage with which she completed the book and faced the storm that it aroused. THE HOUSE OF LIFE is the perfect introduction to Rachel Carson for those who are coming to her work for the first time. To the millions who already admire her as a writer and a prophet, it will provide new insights into her characgter and new material from her own hand. Includes photographs and a complete index.
