This book, Apollo Part Two is a fun and well researched look back at the exploration missions of Apollo 14 through 17. Some people were there, hands-on making the history; the rest of us had to watch it on TV. This is the story of one kid who did just that and so it may likely be your story as well.

About the Author


W. Wes Oleszewski
Author and Research Historian

Author W. Wes Oleszewski was born and raised in mid-Michigan and spent most of his life with an eye turned toward the space, flight and spaceflight. Since 1990 authored 17 books on the subject of Great Lakes maritime history and lighthouses. Now he has turned his attention toward spaceflight.
Noted for his meticulous research, Oleszewski has a knack for weeding out the greatest of details from the most obscure events and then weaving those facts into the historical narratives which are his stories. His tales of actual events are real enough to thrill any reader while every story is technically correct and highly educational. Oleszewski feels that the only way to teach history in this age of computer and video games is through "narrative." The final product of his efforts are captivating books that can be comfortably read and enjoyed by everyone from the eldest grandmother to the grade-school kid and future pilot or historian.
Born on the east side of Saginaw, Michigan in 1957, Wes Oleszewski attended public school in that city through grade nine, when his family moved to the town of Freeland, Michigan. In 1976 he graduated from Freeland High School and a year later entered the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona, Florida. Working his way through college by way of his own earned income alone, Oleszewski graduated in 1987 with a commercial pilot's certificate, "multi-engine and instrument airplane" ratings as well as a B.S. Degree in Aeronautical Science. He has pursued a career as a professional pilot as well as one as an author. He holds an A.T.P. certificate and to date has logged more than 5,000 hours of flight time most of which is in airline category and jet aircraft. Recently he gave up the life of a professional aviator and now enjoys his job as a professional writer.
