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.

Worst performance ever. Story was good but a bit strange, like if the space program was more than it really was. I was expecting historical fiction but this was a bit more, not bad but different. My first Michener novel maybe I should have known better?
