The Right Stuff: Interviews with Icons of the 1960s

James M. Clash

Everything changed in the 1960s. The decade ushered in rock ‘n’ roll, civil rights, a rejection of conformity and a new age of adventure. Spurred by the Cold War, a generation of men sought to attain what seemed like impossible goals: to walk on the moon, to skydive from unthinkable heights, to explore the deepest reaches of the sea. We’ve heard about these achievements in textbooks, but we haven’t heard them in the adventurers’ own words—until now. In The Right Stuff: Interviews With Icons Of The 1960s, journalist and Explorers Club fellow and author Jim Clash has compiled 14 of his incredibly rare interviews with the scientists, athletes and explorers of the ‘50s and ‘60s who expanded our conception of the limits of mankind. Come and take a look back with us at this incredible era.
