"A novel of very high adventure... A sympathetic, historically sound treatment of an important human endeavor that some day could be the stuff of myth, told here with gripping effect... vivid scenes. Mr Michener leaves us with the hope that the dream of exploring space will not die."
New York Times book review
"Michener has laid bare, with a newspaper reporter's pitiless instinct for the truth, the central issue of modern American society. Better than most writers, he gives his readers an understanding of the men and women involved in the mighty saga of space. By using the space program as a cutting edge, Michener has shown a cross section of America today -all the bright promise of our glittering technology, all the choices we face today in our continual striving to build a better tomorrow."
