Leaving behind a world on the brink of destruction, man came to the Red planet and found the Martians waiting, dreamlike.

The strange new world with its ancient, dying race and vast, red-gold deserts cast a spell on him, settled into his dreams, and changed him forever. Here are the captivating chronicles of man and Mars—the modern classic by the peerless Ray Bradbury.
