James A. Michener tackles the most ambitious subject of his career: space, the last great frontier. This astounding novel brings to life the dreams and daring of countless men and women - people like Stanley Mott, the engineer whose irrepressible drive for knowledge places him at the center of the American exploration effort, and Norman Grant, the war hero and US senator who takes his personal battle not only to a nation but to the heavens.

A stunning work of historical fiction, good character development、An epic story. It just didn't kick in with me, so to speak, until abt. p. 400 or so. I kept sloughing through because I've not yet read a Michener book that wasn't worth it, and I'm glad I finished this one.
