Alan Shepard was the brashest, cockiest and most flamboyant of America’s original Mercury Seven, but he was also regarded as the best. Intense, colorful and dramatic, he was among the most private of America’s public figures and until his death in 1998; he guarded the story of his life zealously. Light This Candle, based on Neal Thompson’s exclusive access to private papers and interviews with Shepard’s family and closest friends-including John Glenn, Wally Schirra and Gordon Cooper-offers a riveting, action-packed account of Shepard’s life.
