On the fiftieth anniversary of the first lunar landing, acclaimed historian Douglas Brinkley takes a fresh look at the American space program, President John F. Kennedy's inspiring challenge, and the race to the moon. Featuring a cast of iconic and sometimes controversial figures, such as rocketeer Werner von Braun, astronaut John Glenn, and space booster Lyndon Johnson, American Moonshot is a vivid, enthralling chronicle of one of the nation's most thrilling, hopeful, and turbulent eras. This is living history at its finest - but also an homage to scientific ingenuity, engineering genius, human curiosity, and the boundless American spirit.
