Rocket Men by Robert Kurson, narrated by Ray Porter

Rocket Men: The Daring Odyssey of Apollo 8 and the Astronauts Who Made Man's First Journey to the Moon - Ray Porter, Robert Kurson, Deutschland Random House Audio

This is an amazing story, made even more amazing by Ray Porter's excellent narration!

 

I can't help but feel that, much like 1968 when this tale took place, we need this kind of patriotic, inspiring story to get us through this tough time. (And then I see something like this proposed Trump July 4th parade, and I think to myself, this is NOT what we need right now.) Sorry to get political.

 

These men were patriots, they were brave and they were Americans. It was a pleasure to learn more about them.
