Review

"Recovers for a new generation the thrill of a pioneer quest and the spirit of an age that already seems like ancient history." ---Kirkus --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Michael D'Antonio captures the wackiness of the first year of the space race as the Americans scrambled desperately to match the Soviets and President Eisenhower intervened to guarantee that the space program would not be run by the military. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
