A New York Times bestselling classic: Moon Shot is the epic story of the golden years of
American space exploration, told by the men who rode the rockets. Desperate to beat theSoviets into space, NASA put together a crew of the
nation's most daring test pilots: the seven men who were to lead America to the
moon. The first into space was Alan Shepard; the last was Deke Slayton, whose
irregular heartbeat kept him grounded until 1975. Collaborating with NBC's veteran space reporter Jay Barbree,
Shepard and Slayton narrate in gripping detail the story of America's space
exploration from the time of Shepard's first flight until he and eleven others
had walked on the moon. "Swashbuckling." -The New York Times "Breathtaking."
-Entertainment Weekly "A must read . . . an insight into the wonders of space
flight, yes. But more important, readers come to know Alan Shepard and Deke
Slayton, and come to respect their courage and feel genuine affection for these
two American heroes." -President George H. W. Bush "Gripping, authoritative . .
. and skillfully told, this is the ultimate inside story of the U.S. space
program. " -Walter Cronkite
