Nine-year-old Ron loves going to the Lake City Public Library to look through all the books on airplanes and flight. Today, Ron is ready to take out books by himself. But in the segregated world of South Carolina in the 1950s, Ron?s obtaining his own library card is not just a small rite of passage?it is a young man?s fi rst courageous mission. Here is an inspiring story, based on Ron McNair?s life, of how a little boy, future scientist, and Challenger astronaut desegregated his library through peaceful resistance.

Living in the segregated south of the 1950s, nine-year-old Ron uses peaceful resistance and personal determination to challenge the establishment in order to attain his own library card so he can check out the books he loves, in a moving story about a young boy who grows up to become a skilled scientist and Challenger astronaut.
