Overview

Ryan Richmond has dreamed about going to space since the age of seven. Reading space updates—and seeing pictures of Neil Armstrong on the lunar surface in National Geographic—was the ignition of this dream.

At nineteen he sold his first company and employed the remnants of the Russian Space Program, three of the best space brains in the world.

In his twenties he founded and sold two more companies and hired the most outstanding scientists and engineers from the European Space Authority.

During his thirties, after selling his third company, he invested heavily in Internet start-ups, like Google, netting billions.

Then he patiently waited until NASA’s shuttle program came to an end and contracted the best brains in the U.S. Space program.

Now, Ryan Richmond is in his forties, and still wants to go to space.

The only problem is that the newly elected Administration and members of Congress don’t have a current space program, and they want his!

Better then book one January 20, 2013
By peter klausen
AMERICA ONE was good, AMERICA ONE - The Launch was even better with a story that just wont let you put the book down when you first start to read. only bad thing is that I now have to wait for book 3!
Amazon - K Sower
TI Wade does a great job of story telling with out having to resort to foul language to attract readers the only problem with his books is it takes him too long to write more.
Amazon UK - Phil Swan
I first found this author with his Invasion USA series, if you haven't read them then I suggest you look them up, an excellent series.

America One (Book 1 of 3) I found again to be well written, good character development with sufficient technical details to keep it realistic but not to much that it bores the reader, you cannot help but wish there was a real Mr Richmond out there to help get NASA a kick up the backside!!!
Amazon - James A Doak
First part of a multi part series about an enterprising and brilliant industrialist who decides he's had enough of the rat race here on Mother Earth and enough of the left wing nuts running the USA and is building space vehicles to escape in. The author created characters to help the guy out who bring their own special brand of expertise and knowledge to the book and actually make the thing go. This first volume introduces you to them and fleshes out their backgrounds so that you understand why
