    This book probably isn't for everyone -- it's long and the editor wasn't especially ruthless in her pruning (she is the grand-daughter of Carson's correspondent and trustee of the letters, so she can be forgiven). This bulky volume is worth the extra time, for the letters between Rache...

    Loved this. Probably 90% of the letters are from Rachel, which is a shame because Dorothy's long "every day" type letters were wonderful and, even as long as the book already is, I wanted more! :) Rachel and Dorothy were readers, and the mentions of the books they were reading delig...

    A kindred spirit gave this to me to read with a beautiful inscription. I am slowly reading through it. It is over 500 pages, but oh so amazing if read in the correct frame of mind. ...

    I'm currently reading this book. It's part of my morning ritual while I eat breakfast. I'm drawn into Rachel and Dorothy's world a few letters at a time. It almost feels wrong to read these intimate letters, knowing that Rachel so valued her privacy, but given that the editor is the gr...

    I feel such a joyous surge of wonder every time I stop to think how in such a dark time and when I least expected it, something so lovely and richly satisfying came into my life. In late 1952, marine biologist, conservationist, and naturalist Rachel Carson who was about to move to M...

    You don't have to have read any of Rachel Carson's books in order to fully appreciate the letters she wrote to her best friend. These letters (nearly 3/4 written by Rachel) show the love and intensity of her friendship with Dorothy Freeman; they offer a glimpse of what life was like in...
