New York Times bestselling author and historian Douglas Brinkley delivers a young readers' edition of a story rooted in heroism, bravery, and patriotism-America's race to the moon. July 20, 1969. It's a day that has earned a spot in history textbooks. It's a day that books have been written about and movies made of. It's a day that inspired girls and boys to shoot for the stars when anyone asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. It's the day that America was the first nation to succeed in sending two astronauts, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, to the moon.But what led to this unforgettable moment in history? What were the stakes riding on Apollo 11's safe landing? From Douglas Brinkley himself, in his first young readers' edition, comes the riveting and factual backstory of arguably the most significant event of the twentieth century.
