Overview


“A compelling story, beautifully told, of the greatest adventure in human history.”

—Paul Hoffman, author of Wings of Madness
and host of the PBS series Great Minds of Science

 

“For older readers, this book will bring back nostalgic memories while filling in details of the lunar mission they never knew. For the younger generation, this material is quite new as the story behind the Moon landing has almost been forgotten. Here is a story that has enough adventure, excitement, and suspense to give Harry Potter a run for its money. But unlike Harry Potter, it really happened!”

—Tarun Biswas, Associate Professor of Physics,
 State University of New York at New Paltz
