Who Travelled to the Moon? by Neil Morris

How do we know about the select band of astronauts who travelled to the Moon? How were they selected and what happened to them? This book shows how we know about the astronauts and their experiences from primary and other sources. It includes information on some historical detective work that has taken place, using documentary and oral evidence, that has enabled historians to piece together fascinating information about these unique space pioneers.

About the Author

Neil Morris

Neil Morris worked in publishing for more than ten years before becoming a writer. After studying German at Swansea University, he got his first job as a lexicographer, helping to compile a German-English dictionary. Neil lived in Munich for a few years, translating, proofreading and learning how to make and edit films as well as books. Back in London he worked as an editor for an educational publisher, and this was when he first got hooked on creating exciting books for children.

Neil's publishing career took him on a zigzag course through preschool activity packs, board games and educational toys, eventually leading him back to books. Working freelance, he now works almost exclusively on information books. Neil writes for all age groups and tackles many different subjects, including history, geography and biography. His work has also included compiling young children's word books and junior dictionaries, and he has contributed to large reference works, such as Encarta Children's Encyclopaedia.
