The epic of the Apollo missions told in the astronautsâ€™ own
words and gorgeously illustrated with their photographs
Andrew Chaikinâ€™s A Man on the Moon is considered the
definitive history of the Apollo moon missionsâ€”arguably the
pinnacle of human experience. Now, using
never-before-published quotes taken from his in-depth
interviews with twenty-three of the twenty-four Apollo lunar
astronauts, Chaikin and his collaborator, Victoria Kohl,
have created an extraordinary account of the lunar missions.
In Voices from the Moon the astronauts vividly recount their
experiences in intimate detail; their distinct personalities
and remarkably varied perspectives emerge from their candid
and deeply personal reflections. Carefully assembled into a
narrative that reflects the entire arc of the lunar journey,
Voices from the Moon captures the magnificence of the Apollo
program like no other book. Paired with their own words are
160 images taken from NASAâ€™s new high-resolution scans of
the photos the astronauts took during the missions. Many of
the photos, which are reproduced with stunning and
unprecedented detail, have rarelyâ€”if everâ€”been seen by the
general public. Voices from the Moon is an utterly unique
chronicle of these defining moments in human history.
