Neil Armstrong: One Giant Leap for Mankind
By July 20, 1969, Commander Neil Armstrong and his Apollo 11 crew had traveled thousands miles through space to reach their destination. Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin left Mike Collins aboard the Apollo 11 spacecraft while they attempted to land a smaller lunar module on the moon. The pair would then try to set foot on its surface. What led Armstrong to lead this extraordinary mission and what happened on his dangerous, awe-inspiring journey? That day, Armstrong showed the world the feats that are possible through bravery, teamwork, and a sense of adventure. Book jacket.
