About this title

Synopsis:

James Irwin describes his training and schooling to become an astronaut and his participation in the Apollo 15 voyage to the moon where he conducted experiments, explored the moon's surface, and made a spiritual discovery.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-6-- A personal account of the Apollo 15 mission by one of the 12 men who have walked on the moon. Irwin describes, in general terms, how he came to be an astronaut and the years of training that followed. In recounting the mission, Irwin writes in the present tense without overdramatizing. He shares some lighter moments with readers, and places as much emphasis on how he feels as on what he does. It's a spiritual journey for Irwin, too: not only does he feel the presence of God in the lunar creation around him, and the sense that he will have another mission after Apollo, but God speaks to him directly, helping him deal with a minor equipment failure. Printed on coated paper, this attractive book is adorned with photos of various sizes, most in color, most relevant, and some, it is claimed, never published before. There is no index or bibliography. A book that is best for collections in which the religious message won't seem out of place. --John Peters, New York Public Library
