Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765116669, Hardcover)

ONE SMALL STEP celebrates the 30th anniversary of NASA's historic July 1969 moon landing, the milestone that was the culmination of John F. Kennedy's 1961 commitment to putting a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Filled with documentary photographs from NASA and the National Air and Space Museum as well as images from film, television, and advertising, this beautiful book looks at our fascination with outer space, the development of NASA, the training of the Apollo 11 astronauts, and the thrilling televised lunar landing that captivated the world. The text also explores the cultural influence of space travel, from 1950s sci-fi movies and 2001: A Space Odyssey, to space-oriented fashions and toys. This delightful, nostalgic volume reminds older readers of the thrill of the moon landing, while it illuminates the space race for younger readers. A lively illustrated volume that takes a fond look back at the historic 1969 moon landing.
