Rachel Carson and Stevie Nicks - A Field Guide
Recently on tests, I have noticed a tendency for students, when asked to name the book written by Rachel Carson, to answer "Silver Springs" instead of "Silent Sping". It came to mind that there might be some confusion in the minds of many people out there as to the artists behind these seminal works. As a public service, this web page will attempt to eliminate the confusion between these oft-confused women of influence.

Hopefully, this will clear up any confusion.
