Originally published in 1941, "Under the Sea-Wind" is Rachel Carson's first book, and her personal favorite. Evoking the mystery and beauty of sea birds and sea creatures in their natural habitat, this is one of the masterworks of America's greatest nature writer. Carson's astonishingly intimate account celebrates the open sea: its limitless vistas, its twilight depths, and the delicate negotiations of its ingeniously calibrated ecology. Featuring an introduction by Carson's biographer, Linda Lear, and the original line drawings by Howard Frech, "Under the Sea-Wind" is a timeless and unforgettable portrait of the awe-inspiring natural world. 2007 paperback, 184 pages.
