Pathfinders celebrity passenger was a twenty-four-inch-long, roving robot named Sojourner, which took to the surface of Mars desert-like terrain and sent back an array of stereoscopic images that captured the human imagination like nothing since Apollo 1ls voyage to the moon.

And Mars remains a hot topic as new missions continue to be launched. Mars: Uncovering thc Secrets of the Red Planet captures in words and remarkable photographs all the drama of Sojourners triumph -- as well as a series of previously unpublished, super high-resolution images from the Mars Surveyor, the craft that is currently in orbit around the Red Planet, mapping its surface.

By any standard, the most definitive, state-of-the-art book available on Mars has arrived, integrating 136 stunning photographs with author Paul Raeburns provocative, sharply written text examining the history of Mars exploration. Featuring two exquisite panoramic, three-dimensional, double gatefold photographs depicting the highest mountains and largest valleys in the entire solar system, Mars brings readers closer than ever to the mind-boggling beauty and variety of a planet more than 100 million miles from Earth.
