* The Right Stuff, Wolfe

£ 140.00 GBP
This book goes over the inner world of the early astronauts, John Glenn, Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, and their confreres, that Tom Wolfe describes with his extraordinary powers of empathy. He shows us the hidden olympus which all ambitious combat and test pilots aspire to, the top of the pyramid of 'the right stuff'. The condition is good, with severe yellowing and torn back cover.
