We’re excited to announce the June release of a new autobiography by shuttle astronaut Captain Winston Scott, US Navy Retired. Through special arrangement with Captain Scott, we will be carrying copies of this exciting new book SIGNED by him. This is only the first of several important upcoming announcements on SIGNED books.
This is a book about life as told through the memories, or reflections, of the author navy Captain Winston Scott. These reflections were prompted by events that occurred during two space shuttle missions as a NASA astronaut aboard the space shuttles Endeavour and Columbia. It has been written that Capt. Scott's journey to the stars is a testament to perseverance and vision. Reflections is his attempt to share some of the experiences that drove him to overcome his life's obstacles and become one of a select few who journeyed beyond the bonds of earth into outer space.
Through Reflections, the Scott truly takes us into space. He vividly describes life in space, emphasizing the everyday aspects of living. As his memory is jogged by an event in space, Capt. Scott relates a fascinating story with lessons learned from his past. He has succeeded in capturing the essence of life in space and sharing the space flight experience with the reader.
Although not every chapter follows this exact format, e.g. Where Have You Gone Sky King, Reflections will entertain, educate, and inspire a general audience. In other words, one does not have to be a space enthusiast to enjoy Reflections.
This promises to be a very special book.
New. 1st printing, SIGNED by shuttle astronaut Scott, softbound, 176pp with 16 pp of color photos. Tentatively priced at $19.95.
