Night Walk to the Sea
A story about Rachel Carson, Earth’s Protector
Written by Deborah Wiles
Illustrated by Daniel Miyares
You can listen at Spotify to a bit about Rachel and Silent Spring, and hear a few of the songs I listened to while writing this book about a little boy who is afraid of the storm and his journey to the sea with Rachel where they discover bioluminescence and rescue a firefly. Based on a true story.
“Now open your eyes,” said Rachel. “Look!”
Roger blinked. “What is it?” he whispered.
The sea was alive with moving light.
Blue and green and
sparkling like diamonds,
glittering like emeralds,
alive and alive and alive.
Everywhere, as far as Roger and Rachel could see,
the sea was filled with luminous life.
Praise for Long Walk to the Sea
