This was back when there wasn't much of environmental awareness and very little worry or concerns about pollution. Carson put together all this data about how pesticides, especially DDT, were killing a lot more than just mosquitoes. That led to the publishing of her pathbreaking manifesto, Silent Spring, which was a blazing attack on the indiscriminate use of chemicals in the environment. And less than a year after this book was published, she had to testify before a Senate subcommittee on pesticides
