Into That Silent Sea: Trailblazers of the Space Era, 1961-1965 by Francis French and Colin Burgess These pages chronicle a varied and riveting cavalcade of human stories, including a look at Yuri Gagarinís harrowing childhood in war-ravaged Russia and Alan Shepardís firm purchase on the American dream. It also examines the controversial career of cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space, and the remarkable struggle and ultimate disappointment of her American counterparts. It tries to uncover the truth behind the allegations that shadowed Gus Grissom and Scott Carpenter and then allows the reader to share the heart-stopping suspense of Alexei Leonovís near-fatal first space walk. Through dozens of interviews and access to Russian and American official documents and family records, the authors bring to life the experiences that shaped the lives of the first astronauts and cosmonauts and forever changed their world and ours.
