Book Description

George Tucker (1775-1861) wrote A Voyage to the Moon: with Some Account of the Manners and Customs, Science and Philosophy, of the People of Morosofia, and other Lunarians in 1827. A Voyage to the Moon was one of the earliest attempts at science fiction by an American author. Tucker is one of the first to use the concept of anti-gravity in this depiction of the effects of lesser gravity ""I was astonished at first at this seeming increase in my muscular powers; when on passing along a street...and meeting a dog, which I thought to be mad, I proposed to run out of its way, and in leaping over a gutter, I fairly bounded across the street."" The chapters on the history of Okalbia, the Happy Valley are of interest for the method of preventing overpopulation to students of American utopian communities
