Wally Funk's Race for Space - The Extraordinary Story of a Female Aviation Pioneer (Paperback): Sue Nelson Wally Funk's Race for Space - The Extraordinary Story of a Female Aviation Pioneer (Paperback)

As seen in the major Netflix documentary `Mercury 13' In 1961, Wally Funk was among the Mercury 13, the first group of American pilots to pass the `Woman in Space' programme. Wally sailed through a series of rigorous physical and mental tests, with one of her scores beating all the male Mercury 7 astronauts', including John Glenn's, the first American in orbit. But just one week before the final phase of training, the programme was abruptly cancelled. A combination of politics and prejudice meant that none of the women ever flew into space. Undeterred, Wally went on to become America's first female aviation safety inspector, though her dream of being an astronaut never dimmed. In this offbeat odyssey, journalist and fellow space enthusiast Sue Nelson joins Wally, now approaching her eightieth birthday, as she races to make her own giant leap before it's too late. Covering their travels across the United States and Europe - taking in NASA's mission control in Houston, the European Space Agency's HQ in Paris and Spaceport America in New Mexico, where Wally's ride into space awaits - this is a uniquely intimate and entertaining portrait of a true aviation trailblazer.

It had been a year since Kate Garrett, retired agent for the FBI, thought her search for the infamous Brashear was over. She had made every effort to track him down, but around every corner he eluded her. When she walked the steps of the Federal Building that morning she did not know that the next door she opened would bring him back into her life. For Kate, her continual crusade is accompanied by Nick, her partner in life. He stands beside her, through the nightmares, through the tears and through the pain. In describing Brashear, he is not your classic murderer, he has a way about him that alters the term 'killer'. His looks, charm, and demeanor draw people in. And instead of feeling threatened by Kate's pursuit of him, he feels a closeness to her. Along the way Brashear crosses paths with Cobra, a man on his own treacherous journey. The world has not known the likes of his discoveries and if unsuccessful in his endeavors the end of mankind is certain.
