About this Item

A Near Fine tight copy with tape shadows to the flyleaf in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with edgewear to the spine. This copy is Inscribed and signed by astronaut Jim Irwin on the half title page; his business card is laid in. Irwin walked on the Moon during the Apollo 15 mission in 1971 and manned the Lunar module "Falcon" for 18 hours on the Moon's surface. As a result of his Apollo experience, Irwin underwent a devout religious experience that until he wrote this book he was not allowed to publicly discuss. "As we flew into space," Irwin writes, "we had a new sense of ourselves, of the earth, and of the nearness of God. I sensed the beginning of some sort of deep change taking place inside of me," Irwin died in 1991 of a heart attack. Catalog Rose. Bookseller Inventory # 19184
