Michael Collins, author of Carrying the Fire, flew in both the Gemini 10 and Apollo 11 space missions in the 1960s. He currently lives in South Florida.
"Collins tells what his space journeys meant to him as a human being [and] discusses the role of man amid the multitudinous mechanical marvels . . . Profoundly affecting." --The New Yorker "Michael Collins can write . . . No other person who has flown in space has captured the experience so vividly." --Henry S.F. Cooper, Jr., The New York Times Book Review
