Interesting chronology of James Irwin's life, and the meaning for it that God gave him. Wonderful to see a scientist/astronaut have a Christian view of this unique place we have in the universe. Thanks, James!
Nice Moon Landing Book for the 10-12 Year Old Crowd Apr 20, 2002
Jim Irwin was the Lunar Module Pilot on the Apollo 15 mission to the moon and became the eight man to walk on the moon. Prior to this book, he had written two others books (To Rule the Night and More than Earthlings) about his adventures in space; however unlike this book, these books were geared for the adult audience.
In this book, the author, writing in the first person, describes his life from slightly before the time he applied to be an astronaut, his selection as an astronaut, his training and his eventual trip to and from the moon. There was a fair amount of material dedicated to the training needed to be an astronaut and moon walker, more than I've seen in the usual astronaut biographies. The book also includes many photographs in both color and black and white, to help the reader understand Jim Irwin's life and times at NASA.
