When I first looked at Earthrise, I did not not want read it. My mom got it for me for a Boy Scout merit badge and I was not excited to read. I did not read it for at least 2 weeks, and then I was out of other things to read. So I decided I would try it out and see what happened. It was one of the best books I have ever read.
Earthrise is about astronaut Edgar Mitchell. In the book, our astronaut friend tells us his adventures as an Apollo 14 astronaut. The Apollo 14 was the 3rd spacecraft to visit the moon! Edgar Mitchell tells us about his early days as a kid living on a farm, his life in the navy, his training to become an astronaut, and his amazing experiences in space! The narrative in this book took me away. When he would describe what the moon looked like, or what Earth looked like from space, I could easily imagine I was there with him. This book did not disappoint me. When you first look at it, it looks like some boring old biography on some astronaut no one knows about. But trust me, you’ll like it,
Earthrise: My Adventures as an Apollo 14 Astronaut by Edgar Mitchell is available for checkout from the Mission Viejo Library.
