Críticas:

"Elegantly written and scrupulously researched, this marvellous book not only opens a window on a truly dynamic period but is one of those rarities in spaceflight literature---a compelling and enjoyable page-turner. It captures magnificently the remarkable spirit of those involved in the Apollo story." Charles M. Duke Jr., Apollo 16 astronaut and moonwalker "We who engaged ourselves in making the Apollo program a reality realize the tremendous importance and responsibility of inspiring young people, our future space pioneers. This book emphasizes the notion that seemingly ordinary people can do quite extraordinary things, and we are not bound by our dreams. A remarkable tale of triumph and melancholy." Ed Buckbee, author (with Wally Schirra) of The Real Space Cowboys "Like its predecessors in the Outward Odyssey series, this vivid and entertaining book reveals the human side of space exploration. We all too often think of the Apollo program as a technical achievement, when, in fact, it was the human element that made it successful." Al Worden, Apollo 15 astronaut and chairman of the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation

Reseña del editor:

Arriving on the fortieth anniversary of Apollo 11, as NASA prepares to return astronauts to the moon, "Footprints in the Dust" offers a thorough, engrossing, and multifaceted account of the Apollo missions. The flight of Apollo 11 was a triumph of human endeavour, persistence, and technology, one of the greatest achievements in human history. This book begins with the mission that sent Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin to the moon, then follows American spaceflight through the harrowing rescue of Apollo 13 before moving on to the successful joint Apollo-Soyuz mission in 1975. Drawing on extensive research and interviews with key figures in the space program, the authors convey the human drama and chart the technological marvels that went into the Apollo missions. They also put the accomplishments of American spaceflight into historical context, examining the competitive space race with the Soviet Union, the roles of politics and personality in launching the mission, and the consequences, practical and profound, of this giant leap for mankind.
