A uniquely American memoir, this is at once an inspiring chronicle of triumph and a luminous story of a mother's love, a father's fears, and a young man's coming of age. With the effortless grace of a natural storyteller, Homer Hickam beautifully captures a moment when a dying town, a divided family, and a band of teenage dreamers dared to look beyond their differences and set their sights on the stars-- and saw a future that the nation was just beginning to imagine.
Originally published as Rocket Boys, this amazing autobiography is soon to be a major motion picture starring Chris Cooper and Laura Dern.
