Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060194162, Hardcover)

A true American hero, Gordon "Gordo" Cooper was with a fledgling NASA as humankind took its first courageous steps into space. In his stirring memoir, Leap of Faith, the former Mercury astronaut takes readers on a revealing tour from the early days of the space program when there was a real likelihood of cataclysmic booster failure or being stranded in space, to the future of space exploration. As a true space program "insider," Cooper offers a unique perspective and insight to the challenges of space and tackles hot-button issues such as the secrets of Area 5 1 and the existence of UFOs. His controversial conclusions are well thought out and even astonishing, and they reveal his strong and unshakeable belief in extraterrestrial intelligence.
