Set in the early 22nd century, this story gives the reader an idea of what life on Mars was like a century after first being settled. Andrew Smither’s life spanned that century and as he recalled it, we get a feel for the new society that was created. Youth restoring treatments, wingless flying machines, sprawling mining towns and plural marriages were just some of the features on the landscape of this new world.
Take a high speed trip over thousands of miles of Martian desert in an Ariel Sprite Flyer, a wingless flying machine no larger than the family car. Explore an ancient Martian cave and see the spectacular Crystal Room. And meet some of the colorful characters that populated Andrew Smither’s long life.
