The final novel in the worldwide bestselling Mars trilogy. Mars has grown up It is fully terraformed -- genetically engineered plants and animals live by newly built canals and young but stormy seas. It is politically independent. A brave and buzzing new world. Most of the First Hundred have died. Those that remain are like walking myths to Martian youth. Earth has grown too much Chronic overpopulation, bitter nationalism, scarce resourses. For too many Terrans, Mars is a mocking utopia. A dream to live for, fight for...perhaps even die for.
