Alan Shepard was the second person (and the first American) to ever travel to space. He was also the fifth person to ever walk on the moon. Deke Slayton was also one of the original NASA astronauts. He served NASA for decades, eventually becoming a pilot for the first international space mission in 1975. In Moon Shot: The Inside Story of America’s Race to the Moon, Shepard and Slayton work together to recount the greatest space mission in history. From the preliminary determinations to the aftermath of the moon landing, Moon Shot is a riveting and thorough narrative. Its co-authors, Jay Barbree and Howard Benedict, provide polished prose while Shepard and Slayton provide first-hand accounts. The work also has an introduction by Neil Armstrong. It is one of the most popular works on NASA’s history, told by some of the greatest astronauts to ever live.

This first edition, third printing is signed by Alan Shepard on a bookplate affixed to the free endpaper. It is in fine condition. In the original casing, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, fine.

A fine signed early printing of Moon Shot: The Inside Story of America’s Race to the Moon.
