A Traveler's Guide to Mars: The Mysterious Landscapes of the Red Planet with Poster
by Hartmann, William K.
This clever and informative faux guidebook to Mars pulls the neat trick of making the reader actually want to visit the largely inhospitable planet. A participant in the Mars Global Surveyor mission, noted science writer Hartmann describes the various areas of Mars -- including all the canyons, mesas, volcanoes, dusty plains, and inclement weather -- with experience and enthusiasm. Profusely illustrated with drawings, photos, maps, and paintings, A Traveler?s Guide to Mars also touches on the many myths and misconceptions concerning the Red Planet.
