  • His first paying job was cutting grass in a graveyard. He was just seven years old.
  • He almost lost his life when his fighter jet was damaged in the Korean War.
  • On his first trip into space, his spacecraft, Gemini 8, began spinning out of control -- nearly killing him and his copilot.

    Neil Armstrong made history!

    School Library Journal - School Library Journal
    Gr 2-5-This simple yet complete and interesting biography of the first man on the Moon includes the highlights of his life. Five sidebars-one per chapter-give further explanations of various references such as the Depression and the space race. Photos appear on nearly every page; most are in color. Relevant, whimsical drawings introduce each chapter. Don Brown's One Giant Leap: The Story of Neil Armstrong (Houghton, 1998) has no photos and looks more like a picture book. A solid addition to biography collections.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
