One Giant Leap: The Story of Neil Armstrong BSW269

US$14.95

As a young boy, Neil Armstrong had a recurring dream in which he held his breath and floated high above the people, houses, and cars. He spent his free time reading stacks of flying magazines, building model airplanes, and staring through the homemade telescope mounted on the roof of his neighbor's garage. As a teenager, Neil became obsessed with the idea of flight, working odd jobs to pay for flying lessons at a nearby airport. He earned his student pilot's license on his sixteenth birthday. But who was to know that this shy boy, who also loved books and music, would become the first person to set foot on the moon, on July 20, 1969. Here is the inspiring story of one boy's dream - a dream of flying that landed him more than 200,000 miles away in space, gazing upon the awesome sight of a tiny earth hanging suspended in a perfectly black sky.

两岁大的尼尔•阿姆斯特朗观赏了一场飞行比赛,这深深刻印在他幼小的心上。尼尔一天天长大,他一次又一次梦见自己屏住呼吸,飘浮在半空中。他在教会的墓地割草、在面包店打工,支付上百架模型飞机和《空中旅行》杂志的费用。在万里无云的夜里,他会爬上邻居金德先生的车库屋顶,用望远镜欣赏月亮和星星。一天,尼尔问父母,可不可以让他去学开飞机?他的父母答应了。一九六九年七月二十日,这个生性害羞的小男孩踏上了月球,成为几百万人心目中的大英雄。
