Summary, etc.:
The inside, lesser-known story of NASA's boldest and riskiest mission: Apollo 8, mankind's first journey to the Moon on Christmas in 1968. With a focus on astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders, and their wives and children, this is a vivid, gripping, you-are-there narrative that shows anew the epic danger involved, and the singular bravery it took, for man to leave Earth for the first time - and to arrive at a new world. Print run 50,000.
Subject: Project Apollo (U.S.)
Apollo 8 (Spacecraft)
Space flight to the moon.
