Inscription signed by the author on half-title. One of America's first astronauts and the only one of the original seven to fly in all three pioneering space programs - Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo - Wally Schirra inherited a love of flying and spirit of adventure from his WWI-ace father and barnstorming, wing-walking mother. In this autobiography, Schirra takes an inside look at the early days of spaceflight and those who captured the heart of the nation. Bumping top-edge of last 25pp and top-edge rear wrapper, very good.
