Reviews of Green Hills of Earth, the (1951)
Review by rootbeer (2003-03-10)
The second volume of the Future History series, The Green Hills of Earth deals with the early days of the space program as Heinlein predicted it. One has to wonder how things would be different if, as Heinlein foresaw, the space program was a product of private industry rather than a government program. Dealing with various serious topics from the awesome power of nuclear weapons in space to the complexities of trying to push women's rights forward, this is my favorite of the Future History series.
