DISCUSSION

The above book was published by Golden Press in 1959 as a Weekly Reader Children's Book Club selection. Authored by Lester Del Rey and illustrated by John Polgreen featured space technology of the late 1950s. The cover art vehicle is quite rudimentary having no reaction control system for guidance. The launch site of the rocket is a mystery. Obviously, it was not Florida which is shown in the lower right corner of the book's cover.
