We Seven
By

Rating
The heroic story of the Mercury Seven, the pioneer astronauts who risked their lives for America's first manned space voyages. Project Mercury ran from 1959 through 1963, put the first American in space, and defined NASA's manned space flights to come, from Gemini through Apollo. In We Seven, first published in 1962, the astronauts including Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, John Glenn, Virgil Grissom, Walter Schirra, Alan Shepard, and Donald Slayton--take you behind the scenes of this pioneering program--even into the space capsules themselves. Featuring fascinating firsthand accounts and black-and-white photographs throughout--the astronauts describe the exhilarating launches, hair-raising challenges, and incredible successes of Project Mercury--from breaking through the earth's atmosphere to panicking when a hatch blows. But Project Mercury was more than the heroism of individual missions. In We Seven, America's original astronauts share with us--as only they can--the hopes and dreams of the US at the dawn of a new era.

"Cut of the same stone as Columbus, Magellan, Daniel Boone, Orville and Wilbur Wright...the seven astronauts of Project Mercury were winnowed out by the most searching tests man could devise and machine could execute." -- Time
