The program is an intimate reflection of author Rachel Carson's life as she emerges as America's most successful advocate for the natural world. Using many of Miss Carson's own words, it depicts Carson in the final year of her life. Carson recounts with both humor and anger the attacks by the chemical industry, the government, and the press as she focuses to get her message to Congress and the American people.

An Inspiration

By Carol C.

from Groton, Massachusetts

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS A Sense of Wonder DVD:

This story of Rachel Carson's journey is told through her voice, portrayed by a marvelous actress who seems to become Rachel Carson herself.
This moving film goes to the heart of Carson and her deep love of the natural world. The impact
of the film is to inspire those viewing it to
share her love and care for the environment and
the living things in it. Her commitment and tireless quest to save the beauty and spiritual
resource that is available to all of us in nature
is truly remarkable. This is a most inspiring and beloved testimony to the power of one person to affect major change in the world.

Should be in every library and bookstore

By Nancy

from Orange Co. , CA

Comments about PBS A Sense of Wonder DVD:

This 2008 film belongs in every personal, public and school library and classroom, as well as in every bookstore. Acted convincingly and movingly at her actual homes in Maine and Maryland, it provides extra insight into the kind of person she was. The 3 bonus commentaries are also true gems. It's wonderfully inspiring to see the difference that one courageous determined person can make and to carry on the important work she started. A must for all ages - either alone or along with her iconic book, Silent Spring.

Comments about PBS A Sense of Wonder DVD:

This was a very well done piece reenacting interviews given by the late Rachel Carson concerning not only the environment and her concern for it, but also offered a rare insight into her personal struggles throughout her life. Recommend it highly!

Mrs Carson was a prophet

By kenmonty

from Manchester, NH

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS A Sense of Wonder DVD:

This was an exceptional performance by an exceptional actress portraying an exceptional person. What a stunning film! A poetical work, and a superb performance. A very important work - the content so important, timeless. And I must add, with today's commercial TV networks dumbing down their programming to insult our intelligence - thank you to PBS for airing this intellectually stimulating and pertinent film - thank you for believing your viewers are intelligent persons.
Viewers - pay attention to Rachel's closing statement - her message. This is prophecy for our time!
