Journalist Loren Grush's compelling history of the first women selected for NASA's astronaut corps is perfectly paired with Inés del Castillo's conversational and sensitively attuned narration. While these women's lives became inextricably bound through their historic service, this engaging audio production explores their individual experiences, both personal and professional. Their invaluable contributions as medical doctors, scientists, and engineers enhanced the Space Shuttle program's new mandate to conduct scientific studies and make space travel a routine occurrence for an increasing number of commercial and government partners. Though del Castillo doesn't always clearly delineate between quoted passages and the author's voice, she embraces the celebratory tone of this work. Sally, Judy, Anna, Kathy, Shannon, and Rhea's life-altering journeys as the first American women astronauts continue to inspire. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
