KIRKUS REVIEW

Cape Canaveral, the center of United States rocket activity, has become a point of interest throughout the world. Here, in an illustrated text, the author takes the reader behind the scenes at the rocket base. He examines the days precoding the installation at the Cape, the early steps of rocketry, the first days when the WAC Corporal was launched. The men, machines, and vessels are introduced to the reader in a text which is a page of history in the making and should be of general interest to space-conditioned little boys.
