Schirra's autobiography of one of America's pioneer astronauts, the only one of the original seven Mercury astronauts to command a spacecraft in all three pioneering space programs, Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. A fascinating account into the life and times of a true American hero.
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.
