Moonwalk: the Story of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing
The Apollo 11 mission began as a challenge. In 1961 President John F Kennedy committed the United States to achieving, within the decade, the goal of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth. This book tells the Apollo 11 story through the medium of artist Adrian Buckley's atmospheric imagery. It is a story of epic heroism and technological endeavour, a tale of three extraordinary men and their incredible achievement: Mission Commander Neil Armstrong, Lunar Module Pilot Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin and Command Module Pilot Michael Collins. On 21 July 1969, when Neil Armstrong opened the hatch in the Lunar Module and descended the ladder to set foot on the surface of the Moon, he became in an instant the greatest traveller in human history. Written for children, but with parents very much in mind, this is a book to be explored and enjoyed.
