"Photographs of Earth taken from space, primarily by Apollo spacecraft. Although many of the photographs and much of the information here have scientific significance, the book was written to share with all men a major benefit of our nation's space program--a sobering realization of man's place in the universe ... The astronauts' descriptions from space, the pictures returned from space, and the strong desire to share these experiences with others have led to the preparation of this book."--Page vi.
