Book Summary

The definitive biography of Sally Ride, America's first woman in space, with exclusive insights from Ride's family, written by the ABC reporter who covered NASA during its transformation from a test pilot boy's club to an inclusive elite.

Sally Ride made history as the first American woman in space. A member of the first astronaut class to include women, she broke through a quarter-century of white male fighter jocks when NASA chose her for the 7 shuttle mission.

Sherr also writes about rise scrupulously guarded personal life--she kept her sexual orientation private--with exclusive access to Ride's partner, her former husband, her family and countless friends and colleagues. Sherr's revealing portrait is warm and admiring but unsparing. It makes us extraordinary really talented and bold woman, and inspiration to millions, come alive.
