One of America's first astronauts and the only one of the original seven to fly in all three pioneering space programs - Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo - Wally Schirra inherited a love of flying and spirit of adventure from his World War I-ace father and barnstorming, wing-walking mother. In this revealing autobiography, Schirra takes an inside look at the early days of spaceflight and the men who captured the heart of the nation.

Four 100-minute tapes. Unabridged.From AudioFile:
Written as a conversational piece about the twenty-year career of Navy test pilot and astronaut Wally Schirra, this performance maintains the armchair tone and pace of what amounts to a collection of personal anecdotes. Richard Rohan handles the technical vocabulary well, making it seem as though the author himself were doing the narration. Schirra jumps around in time and space and repeats himself occasionally, but he convinces his fans that pilots work hard and play hard, and the casual stories of both his professional lives make interesting listening. Hear this book to learn what Commander Schirra said when President Kennedy asked him, "Wally, are you a turtle?" J.A.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
