A fascinating memoir of mankind's greatest journey told in familiar, human terms, Carrying the Fire is by turns thrilling, humorous and thought-provoking, a unique work by a remarkable man.

The years that have passed since Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins piloted the Apollo 11 spacecraft to the moon in July 1969 have done nothing to alter the fundamental wonder of the event: man reaching the moon remains one of the great events – technical and spiritual – of our lifetime. In this remarkable book, Michael Collins conveys, in a very personal way, the drama, beauty and humour of that adventure. He also traces his development from his first flight experiences in the air force, through his days as a test pilot, to his Apollo 11 space walk, presenting an evocative picture of the joys of flight as well as a new perspective on time, light and movement from someone who has seen the fragile Earth from the other side of the moon.

'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.'
New York Times Book Review
