Our Heroine is Saving Mars

Dennis Tito is in the news again. The first space tourist is planning a manned fly-by mission to the red planet in 2018.  How exciting!  And how well today's book by Cidney Swanson fits with this breaking news!  It has been my dream since the first space walk to see man build a colony on Mars.  Discovering 'The Moon is a Harsh Mistress' by Robert Heinlein only fueled that desire.  Swanson's new book rekindles that desire.  This science fiction book feels real even as we earthlings are still getting our lunar legs on. What a joy to read!
