Who Is Neil Armstrong? (Who Was... Biography Series)
Who Is Neil Armstrong? by Roberta Edwards, illustrated by Nancy Harrison and Stephen Marchesi
On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon and, to an audience of over 450 million people, proclaimed his step a “giant leap for mankind.” This Eagle Scout built his own model planes as a little boy and then grew up to be a test pilot for experimental aircraft before becoming an astronaut.
Over 100 black-and-white illustrations bring Armstrong’s story to life.
