"Ward ... makes the inner workings of the Apollo and Saturn space missions very understandable. ... He does a fantastic job of showing the behind-the-scenes work that allowed the Apollo and Saturn space missions to take place. All readers interested in the history of space exploration will enjoy this work. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readership levels." (C.

There is also a lengthy chapter on the Apollo 1 fire that many will find of interest. Ward relies on more than seventy interviews that he personally conducted ... ." (Roger Launius's Blog,, March, 2016) "Rocket Ranch is the most recent attempt by memorabilia collectors to provide a technical description of Kennedy Space Center. Space Center enthusiasts and technophiles will love the detailed descriptions and the stories drawn from Ward's interviews with employees, contractors, and associates of Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo era. ... Kennedy Space Center technophiles will love Ward's Rocket Ranch for providing them a more detailed and largely accurate description of Apollo-era technology infrastructure in a well-organized tour guide format."
