The last man on the moon : astronaut Eugene Cernan and America's race in space by Eugene Cernan ( Book )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eugene Cernan is a unique American who came of age as an astronaut during the most exciting and dangerous decade of space flight. His career spanned the entire Gemini and Apollo programs, from being the first person to spacewalk all the way around our world to the moment when he left man's last footprint on the Moon as commander of Apollo 17. Between those two historic events lay more adventures than an ordinary person could imagine as Cernan repeatedly put his life, his family, and everything he held dear on the altar of an obsessive desire. Written with New York Times best selling author Don Davis, this is the astronaut story never before told - about the fear, love, and sacrifice demanded of the few men who dared to reach beyond the heavens for the biggest prize of all : the Moon
