Neil Armstrong: One Giant Leap for Mankind (Sterling Biographies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Neil Armstrong was Americas rocket man, the first person to set foot on the moon and turn science fiction into amazing reality. Award-winning authors Tara Dixon-Engel and Mike Jackson tell the fascinating story of how Armstrong went where no one had gone before, leaving his mark on the powdery surface of another world.

Even at an age when other boys were just learning to drive, Neil was training to reach the skies. He went on to study aeronautical engineering, win medals as a fighter pilot, try out the X-15 experimental rocket plane, and become one of the elite few chosen to be a NASA astronaut…where he took the test pilots credo of “higher, faster and farther” to thrilling heights.
