To Rule the Night. The Discovery Voyage of Astronaut Jim Irwin.
by [Astronaut Memoir] Irwin, James B.

Publisher Information:
Broadman & Holman Publishers, Nashville: 1973.

A Near Fine copy with previous owners stamps on the flyleaf in a Very Good dust jacket with edgewear, closed edge tears and two chips missing from the heel of the spine. This copy is inscribed by astronaut Jim Irwin. Irwin walked on the Moon on during the Apollo 15 mission in 1971 and manned the Lunar module "Falcon" for 18 hours on the Moon's surface. As a result of his Apollo experience, Irwin underwent a devout religious experience that until he wrote this book he was not allowed to publicly discuss. "As we flew into space," Irwin writes, "we had a new sense of ourselves, of the earth, and of the nearness of God. I sensed the beginning of some sort of deep change taking place inside of me," Irwin died in 1991 of a heart attack.
