Award-winning historian and bestselling author Douglas Brinkley takes us to the 1960s to recreate one of the most exciting and ambitious achievements in the history of humankind: America’s race to the moon. Bringing together the extraordinary political, cultural, and scientific factors that fueled the birth and development of NASA and the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo projects, this is an homage to scientific ingenuity, human curiosity, and the boundless American spirit.
