An interesting journey through a moon voyager's life. 20 novembre 2011
Par AReader - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Only twenty-four people ever journeyed to the moon. As time goes by, we are losing them, one by one. When one passes away, frequently their unique story as part of humankind's greatest adventure is lost forever. It is therefore a great pleasure to read Willie Moseley's carefully reconstructed account of Stu Roosa's life. Moseley has worked closely not only with the Roosa family, but also with Roosa's fellow astronauts, to tell a fascinating story of a life. Roosa's days as a smoke jumper prior to joining NASA would make a great book in themselves. I would recommend this book for those wanting to learn more about the lesser-known characters in the great adventure of the Apollo program.

A Most Worthy Biography 17 juin 2012
Par Arthur S - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Willie Moseley's Smoke Jumper, Moon Pilot brings to life the story of a hero and a man. One of only 24 men who flew to the moon and only one of six flying truly alone on the backside of the moon many times over - devoid of any human contact comes to life in this extraordinary reading. Moseley's journalistic background draws the best from the subject's family, friends, fellow astronauts and those closest that knew this quiet hero so well. From a rustic childhood, to smoke jumper in forest fires, to Air Force pilot, to astronaut, businessman and big game hunter - the author makes this remarkable man's life so compelling and remarkably human. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys non-fiction heroics and a good read.

An A+ account of a rare trip to the moon 15 juin 2012
Par Jim Vertrees - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is a very nice biography of one of the 24 men to have visited the moon. Stewart Roosa was one of the Apollo astronauts who never had the chance to write his own account of going to the moon. He did talk about the journey in many presentations and Willie Moseley has interviewed many of Col. Roosa's family, friends, colleagues and fellow astronauts. Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the only surviving prime crew member and Lunar Module Pilot for Apollo 14 is also a valuable contributor to this book.

Willie spends some time on Stuart's early years and his brief time as a smoke jumper. Although that part of Stuart's life was short; he was drawn into the job because of his love of nature. The experience did weave throughout the rest of his life, even his mission to Earth's moon. Willie documents this tread very well and in an interesting and entertaining manner.

Willie took on the project because Command Module Pilots and their part of the moon missions is a little under represented in the autobiographies and biographies of our space program. Michael Collins' "Carrying the Fire" is a notable exception. Willie's journalist background serves him well in completing this book. He covers a lot of ground and gives a very good account of Stewart Roosa's life and his mission. It is documented very well and covers much of what is known to space readers to keep the story complete but also reveals some new and valuable information to anyone interested in the United States Space program. I do recommend this book to new readers into the space program as well as those who try to get every new account published.
