The flight of Apollo 11 was a triumph of human endeavor, persistence, and technology, one of the greatest achievements in human history. This book begins with the mission that sent Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin to the moon, then follows American spaceflight through the harrowing rescue of Apollo 13 before moving on to the successful joint Apollo-Soyuz mission in 1975.
Spring of 1848, somewhere along the San Carlos River, Arizona, Comancheros attack and massacre three families bound for the riches of California. Protected by his mother's body, an infant is the lone survivor. Found by Mescalero Apache, they adopted and later named him Kilchii. Reared by the clan's chief, Sani, he learns the ways of the Apache. When Cochise calls for all the Apache to join him to drive the white-eyes from their land, Sani takes Kilchii, now a young warrior, and a box that contains Kilchii's heritage, to the San Xavier Mission.
