Sky of Stone by Homer Hickam

Sky of Stone
by Homer Hickam

Homer Hickam's trilogy about his childhood through his coming of age stories are some of the best written!

These books not only give us the foundation of his future life at NASA as an engineer, but enlighten us about the industry of coal mining.  Most importantly, it is a lesson in the real tangled affairs of a family and the power of dreams and love.

Hickam brings us into a world so foreign that we are more apt to be repulsed than engaged, but engage us he does.  These non-fiction books are masterfully written and a readers delight.

Here you find determination, love and the foibles and kindnesses of real people.
