The childhood and adult life of the first man to orbit the earth, who went on to serve as a United States Senator and returned to space at 77 years old, is presented in this profile of John Glenn. Illustrations.
From the Publisher:
Describes the future senator and astronaut's upbringing in Ohio, his early interest in aviation and success as a pilot in the Marines, his mission to the moon, and his political career.Dear Reader:

The Childhood of Famous Americans series, sixty-five years old in 1997, chronicles the early years of famous American men and women in an accessible manner. Each book is faithful in spirit to the values and experiences that influenced the person's development. History is fleshed out with fictionalized details, and conversations have been added to make the stories come alive to today's reader, but every reasonable effort has been made to make the stories consistent with the events, ethics, and character of their subjects.

These books reaffirm the importance of our American heritage. We hope you learn to love the heroes and heroines who helped shape this great country. And by doing so, we hope you also develop a lasting love for the nation that gave them the opportunity to make their dreams come true. It will do the same for you.

Happy Reading!

The Editors
