Sally Ride made history as the first American woman in space. A member of the first astronaut class to include women, NASA chose her for the seventh shuttle mission, inspiring several generations of women. After a second flight, Ride served on the panels investigating the Challenger explosion and the...

Columbia disintegration that killed all aboard. In both instances, she faulted NASA's rush to meet mission deadlines and its organizational failures. She also co-founded a company promoting science and education for children, especially girls.

In Sally Ride: America's First Woman in Space, Lynn Sherr writes about Ride's scrupulously guarded personal life, with exclusive access to Ride's partner, her former husband, her family, and countless friends and colleagues.

This is a rich biography of a fascinating woman whose life intersected with revolutionary social and scientific changes in America.

Sherr's revealing portrait is warm and admiring but unsparing. It makes this extraordinarily talented and bold woman-an inspiration to millions-come alive.
