In the middle of the 20th century, a race was being run.  Not a foot race or an auto race.  It was a race to the moon.  Both the Soviet Union and the United States had their sites set on being the first to land a man on the moon.  This book highlights the steps taken to achieve the goal.  On July 20, 1969, the first man stepped onto the surface of the moon.  The United States successfully landed several other flights but have not been back since 1972.  Learn about the brave men who went where no man had gone before.  The book is accompanied by a DVD that contains footage of the first landing and much, much more.
