Interior text

A modern science-fiction classic by an award winning author

They came from Ohio — Alabama — California...

Here is the fabulously exciting story of Americans of the not very distant future and of the great migrations to the planet Mars. It is the story of familiar people and familiar passions set against the incredible beauties and terrors of a new world.

It is a truly original book, difficult to put down — impossible to forget.
