"Mars is a prison planetwhere repressive Earth's governments send their hardened criminals and political malcontents. It's a one-way trip for the unfortunate passengers: the rockets are preprogrammed to land near enough to the settlement so the condemned can be rescued for a life of unrelenting hardship, persistent hunger and backbreaking work. Earth makes no attempt to monitor the situation: the colonists are completely cut off left to make what they will of everlasting exile on a planet barely fit for human existence....But men still hope and work for a better existence, striving for a life free from want, a life without the repressive regimeof the self-appointed 'Governor.'
