Editorial Reviews

"Everyone interested in the U.S. space program should read Michael Michaud's Reaching for the High Frontier: The American Pro-Space Movement, 1972-84, both for enlightenment and for entertainment.... [The book] is a thorough accurate, and well-written history.... Michaud's fine book chronicles the origins and history of the pro-space movement up to 1984. It lays bare the shortcomings as well as the successes, the zany ideas and internecine warfare among various groups, and the admirable aspirations that motivate them.... Reaching for the High Frontier remains the best book yet written about the pro-space movement."-Sky & Telescope
