A true story of the Space Race, From Rocket Boys to Apollo 11, Homer Hickam’s book offers a window into what it was like to be young and living in America at the time. Homer was an outsider in an institution called Coalwood, West Virginia. He found out that he had a gift for making rockets and making friends along the way. This book will give insight into how this country became the greatest superpower on earth.

We all dream of leaving our hometowns, but it’s not always as easy as you’d think. Especially when there’s a chance your mom will cry; in this story about a boy who dreamed of becoming an astronaut, Homer Hickam writes about what it takes to leave the town you know behind and get the opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself.

This is the true story of Homer Hickam and a group of friends who dreamt up plans for their rocket engines when America faced a new challenge in space exploration. It was 1957, the year Sputnik raced across the Appalachian sky, and the small town of Coalwood, West Virginia, was slowly dying. Faced with an uncertain future, Homer nurtured a dream: to send rockets into outer space. The introspective son of the mine’s superintendent and a mother determined to get him out of Coalwood forever fell in with a group of misfits who learned not only how to turn scraps of metal into sophisticated rockets but how to sustain their hope in a town that swallowed its men alive.

Free yourself from dreaming of a world where anything is possible. In this beautifully written, award-winning story of a small town in 1957, Homer Hickam shows us what it means to ignite the spark of possibility in yourself and others.
