Of the twelve astronauts who walked on the moon between 1969 and 1972, only nine are still alive.  One day, in the near future, there will be none.


After a chance encounter with one of them, Andrew Smith set out on a journey across America to find the remaining members of this most exclusive - and largely forgotten - group.


Moondust was chosen by The Times as one of the 100 Best Books of the Noughties and was nominated as book of the year at the British Book Awards.  A UK number one bestseller, it has been translated into more than a dozen languages.
