about this book

The first American to orbit the Earth (1962), John Glenn tells the story of his devotion to his family, legendary journeys into space, and his public-service career between flights. In his unassuming style, Glenn traces his career as a World War II fighter pilot, an astro-pioneer aboard Friendship 7, a 24-year member of the U.S. Senate, and his return to space aboard the shuttle Discovery.
