Written by astronaut Eugene Cernan and journalist Don Davis, "The Last Man on the Moon" is a revealing and dramatic look at the inside of the American space program. As commander of Apollo 17, Cernan was the last man to leave footprints on the Moon.

"Gene Cernan chronicles his involvement in man's reach for the Moon with an intensity that matches the incredible excitement of that remarkable time." --Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon

"Gene Cernan's wild ride into history included a tortuous spacewalk devised,it seems, by Dante...with enough sacrifices and close calls to fill a lifetime." --Tom Hanks, star of Apollo 13 and producer of the HBO series From the Earth to the Moon

"Gene Cernan's The Last Man on the Moon rumbled off the launchpad and propelled me into a world of hope and triumph over tragedy. It's a high-powered read I won't soon forget." --Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison

"With the feel of a story recalled among friends, this is an appealingly down-to-earth account from the last man to walk on the Moon. No advanced physics, no scientific mumbo jumbo, just a thoroughly engrossing recollection of Cernan's crucial role in the conquest of space. I loved the book." --Ron Howard, director of Apollo 13

"Gene Cernan shares the extra dimension beyond the usual who, what, when, where, and how of space flight. For those who would like to go and can't, this is a look into the real experience and feelings of space flight." --Senator John Glenn, first American to fly in orbit

"Gene Cernan has written a whale of a personal space tale, filled with firsts, lasts, and many thrills in between. This is a super story of the emotional highs and lows of our U.S. astronauts and their families when the supreme challenge was to reach the Moon and return alive. I promise you will not be able to put it down." --Donald D. Engen, director of the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution
