Story Musgrave has an insatiable passion for life. From his childhood on a dairy farm in western Massachusetts, to payload commander on the Hubble Space Telescope rescue mission, share Story’s incredible physical and spiritual journey as he relates to the world, and the universe, around him. Based on a thematic biographical style, this intimate portrait of one of the world’s greatest thinkers, explorers and aviators is revealed through the eyes of Story himself, his family, friends and colleagues. Story is an American hero, renaissance man and, arguably, NASA’s greatest unofficial spokesperson - certainly one of the few with real vision and authenticity. This book has wide appeal to a variety of audiences. It is a human journey which happens to take place largely within the framework of the space program, but also encompasses themes such as mechanics, flying, nature, spirituality and humanity.

I have had a lot of comments, emails and discussions with people who have read my biography of Story. I feel that I have succeeded in presenting the man as I came to know him - not just the doctor, the space physiologist, the pilot, the astronaut - but the poet, the philosopher, the artist. A lot of people that have met Story have been transformed in their own lives - and I am no exception. In many ways, documenting Story's journey became my own journey of self-discovery. It's about being involved in life, of getting the most out of life, of wanting to really participate in the whole process of existence.About the Author:
