1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Home Planet conveys the grandeur of Earth and the mystery of space through 150 stunning photographs -- many never before published -- selected from the entire Soviet and American archives. The accompanying narrative, at once poetic, deeply personal, often funny, often spiritual, is woven from interviews and articles and air-to-ground transmissions and follows the loose chronology of a space mission: going up, space walk, going to the moon, observations, space stations, and reflections. Together, images and text portray, as no previous book has, the bond between Earth and its inhabitants, and the connectedness among the many peoples who share this planet."--Page 4 of cover
