The Book That Changed the World

Rachel Carson and Her Book That Changed the World
by Laurie Lawlor

Illustrated by Laura Beingessner

Once you are aware of the wonder and beauty of earth, you will want to learn about it.

Rachel Carson found many adventurous ways to study nature and engaged in many dangerous investigations but her riskiest of her endeavors was to write and publish Silent Spring, a book pointing out the dangerous effects of chemicals on our living world.
The fiftieth anniversary of Rachel Carson’s book, Silent Spring, is feted with Lawlor’s biography of the pioneering environmentalist. She hoped to wake people up to the harmful impact we humans were having on our planet.

Cosmic Plurality

by R. Buckminster Fuller

Environment to each must be
All there is, that isn’t me.
Universe in turn must be
All that isn’t me AND ME.

Since I only see inside of me
What brain imagines outside me,
It seems to be you may be me.
If that is so, there’s only we.

Me and we, too
Which love makes three,
Universe
Perme-embracing
It-Them-You-and-We.

Happy 120th Birthday!
