Loved this story of the early years of the space program and the men who were my larger-than-life heroes.

I didn't know what happened to Chuck Yeager. I was six years old but I spent a lot of time in N. Edwards because my grandparents lived out there and owned a restaurant there called The Little Red Barn. I remember hearing the sonic booms and remember the feeling that I was somewhere special with the jets and pilots and all. What happened to Chuck Yeager must have been talked about by the adults around me but I was too young to understand. I can't believe he survived it and kept flying. God bless Chuck Yeager and all the pilots including the astronauts. Kind of through osmosis maybe I took great pride in our Moon Landing and have never forgotten the excitement of that day. Patriotism was built into me early and I think my time in N. Edwards and my grandparents association with the base and the pilots had a lot to do with it. Now that I have a lot of names of pilots from that time I am going to go through the guest book of the restaurant and look for the signatures. And now every time I fly and hear the drawl of the Captain I will be thinking of and thanking Chuck Yeager and his fellow wild boys, all the pilots. God bless America. It's not logic, it's love.
This was a great book, I loved reading it. Recommended.
