New York Times Bestseller: Silent Spring author Rachel Carson's early masterwork brings to life the elegiac, subtle beauty of birds and the sea, blending her natural storytelling ability with clear-eyed science.   In her first book, preeminent nature writer Rachel Carson tells the story of the sea creatures and birds that dwell in and around the waters along North America's eastern coast--and the delicately balanced ecosystem that sustains them. Following the life cycles of a pair of sanderlings, a mackerel, and an eel, Carson gracefully weaves scientific observation with imaginative prose to educate and inspire, creating one of the finest wildlife narratives in American literature.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Rachel Carson including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University.… (mer)

Oh, what a nice little book. Another perfect one for reading on a deck looking out over the ocean, so I was very glad that I saved it up for such an occasion. ( )

Although famous today for Silent Spring, Rachel Carson had already made her name decades earlier. During the 1930s, as a young zoologist specialising in marine ecology, she helped pay the bills with a series of essays which appeared in newspapers such as the Boston Globe and attracted widespread praise. These led, in turn, to several books about the ocean, of which Under the Sea-Wind was the first.
. It reads almost like a nature documentary, a narrative description (illustrated with pencil sketches by Howard Frech) of the wildlife of the western Atlantic and adjacent coastline. More nonfiction than fiction, it has no plot - unless you count the tumultuous births, lives and deaths of the natural world itself as the plot. It is, though, filled with characters: Silverbar the sandpiper, Scomber the mackerel, Anguilla the eel, and what Carson gives us is an utterly realistic impression of both their lives - what it's actually like to be a shore bird or fish - and of the ecology of it all, how it all works, its interconnectedness (a more familiar idea nowadays than it was back in the 1930s). For me, one thing which came across particularly vividly was the small fry - copepods, shelled protozoa, the miniscule larvae of jellyfish and crabs - usually lumped together as 'plankton'; it's like peering down a microscope tube at a rich, bustling little world of jewel-like entities, a world exquisite and deadly in equal measure.
. Of course, this is a glimpse of the rivers and seas as they were back in the late 1930s, i.e. somewhere along the scale between the original pre-human superabundance and today's polluted and almost fishless wastes; reading this, I found myself hoping that Carson can't see from beyond the grave what has been done to the oceans she loved.
. And that is what comes across here most clearly of all: how much she loved the sea and everything that lives in it - it shows in every sentence, page after brilliant page. One reason the prose is so good is that every line was read out loud, for its rhythm, as she went (I don't really use audiobooks, but I can imagine this being a stunning listen). It also changed my picture of the author: from here on I'll think of Rachel Carson, only second as a scientist and environmental inspiration, first and foremost as a world-class author. ( )

Dieses ansprechende Buch von Rachel Carson ist außergewöhnlich, da es sich um eine Erzählung mit naturwissenschaftlichem Hintergrund handelt. Rachel Carson hat ihr umfangreiches Wissen über das Meer und seine Bewohner in einen erzählerischen Rahmen gestellt, was der Lektüre ihren besonderen Reiz gibt: Eine Geschichte liest man gemeinhin lieber als eine wissenschaftliche Abhandlung. Offensichtlich war genau dies die Absicht Rachel Carsons: Ein allgemein verständliches und gut lesbares Buch zu schreiben, das sowohl der Unterhaltung als auch der Wissensvermittlung dient. Dies ist ihr hervorragend gelungen. Der Leser geht mit dem Sanderling „Silverbar“, einem Seevogel, mit der Makrele „Scomber“ und mit dem Aal „Anguilla“ auf die Reise und erlebt deren Schicksale hautnah mit. Dabei fällt neben Rachel Carsons Sachkunde ihr außerordentliches Einfühlungsvermögen für die tierischen Protagonisten auf. Die Sensibilität, mit der sie die marinen Lebewesen beschreibt, ist anrührend und alles andere als selbstverständlich in einer Welt, in der Tiere als primitive Lebensformen angesehen werden und vorrangig der menschlichen Ernährung zu dienen haben.
Von Rachel Carson, der Autorin des berühmten Buches „Der stumme Frühling“, wollte ich unbedingt mehr lesen. Da ich keine deutsche Ausgabe finden konnte, musste ich „Under the Sea-Wind“ in Englisch lesen. Dadurch sind mir höchstwahrscheinlich einige Feinheiten des Textes entgangen. Die außergewöhnliche Schönheit und Poesie von Rachel Carsons Buch ist jedoch auch mir, der Englisch-nicht-Muttersprachlerin, aufgefallen.
Rachel Carson hat „Under the Sea-Wind“ im Jahr 1941 veröffentlicht. Schon damals zeichneten sich Überfischung und andere folgenreiche Eingriffe des Menschen in die marine Umwelt deutlich ab. Man will sich gar nicht ausmalen, was die Autorin zur Verschmutzung der Meere in der heutigen Zeit sagen würde. Vermutlich wäre sie erschüttert. Wie gut, dass sie nicht mehr miterleben muss, was wir aus ihrer so innig geliebten Meereswelt gemacht haben. ( )

In a narrative style, this book details the life cycle of several animals that live in or near the ocean. First a shorebird called the skimmer. The second section is about the life of a mackerel fish, from egg to spawning adult. Last of all is the life of an eel- from its origins in the ocean, travels upstream to a creek, development and growth into an adult eel, and then the journey back to the sea decades later. I think I liked this narrative, and that of the fish, the best. It describes the movements and habits of other creatures that share the environment- there are so many other creatures in this book: starfish and octopus and tuna and dolphins and lobsters and barnacles and sand fleas and on and on. The movement of water, the pressure of tides, changes in salinity or light or temperature and how the fish and other animals respond to that, how they feel it. This book really does not feel dated. It is impressive how clearly she describes the interwoven lives and activities of so many different animals in the ocean. It encompasses so much
