Moon Palace is the story of Marco Fogg, but it also touches on the history of the USA as it pushes back the frontiers of place and space, from the founding of the first colony at Roanoke to the landing of the first astronauts on the moon.

You can then decide which of the sites and pages you wish to visit, and how far you want to deepen your knowledge on a particular topic.
