Review

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR "APOLLO""In covering the entire span from the dawn of the Space Age through the Apollo missions, David West Reynolds has done an excellent job of bringing a remarkable period of human exploration to life. He has put the early dreams into context and provided a valuable sense of closure by reflecting upon Apollo's legacy. Altogether a wonderful account."--David M. Harland, author of "Exploring the Moon: The Apollo Expeditions" and "Jupiter Odyssey"

From the Inside Flap

"Apollo" is an exciting account of the historic program that landed a man on the moon. Featuring a wealth of rare photographs, artwork, and cutaway illustrations, "Apollo" brings the journey to life, from the adventurous astronauts to the scientists and engineers who designed and built the state-of-the-art spacecraft. With concise descriptions, David West Reynolds introduces a new generation to this thrilling episode in U.S. history while also providing engaging details for the space aficionado. All of the key events and personalities are covered, creating a comprehensive picture of how we got to the moon and what happened along the way. Detailed diagrams and maps provide a clear understanding of the technology that carried the astronauts their and back again as well as what they accomplished while they were there. In addition, the book includes a foreword by Wally Schirra, the only astronaut to fly in all three of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, and an afterword by Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon.
David West Reynolds is the bestselling author of nine books. He holds a doctorate in classical art and archaeology and has published scholarly articles on imperial Rome and medieval Africa. While researching "Apollo," he spent time in an original lunar module trainer, got to try on lunar surface gloves, and was able to take a seat in a lunar rover. In the course of his wide-ranging career, he has sculpted a life-size dinosaur skeleton, created museum models of historic spacecraft, and relocated desert filming locations in Tunisia featured in the original "Star Wars" film. He lives in Marin County, California.
