Description: With this eloquent and impassioned book, the biologist and poet Sandra Steingraber shoulders the legacy of Rachel Carson, producing a work about people and land, cancer and the environment, that is as accessible and invaluable as Silent Spring.

Having been treated for a rare form of cancer in her early twenties, Steingraber approaches her subject from the twin standpoints of a survivor and a concerned scientist. She traces the high incidence of cancer and the terrifying concentrations of environmental toxins in her native rural Illinois, then goes on to show a similar correlation in other communities, such as Boston and Long Island, and throughout the United States, where cancer rates have risen alarmingly since mid-century. Living Downstream is a landmark work, at once a moving personal document and a triumph of scientific detection.
