Books and Clippings in LIS -- NG staff only includes Carrying the Fire, by Michael Collins (1974) An astronaut's life is adventurous by definition. Apollo 11 pilot Michael Collins's account of his own is clean, often funny at his own expense, modestly heroic. The best firsthand account of spaceflight so far, it tells us what it was like up there, encapsulated in the infinity of space, how it felt to fall off the edge of the known world. Cooper Square, 2001.
