In this extraordinary Baedeker - accessible, up-to-date, and prodigiously illustrated with photographs from Mariner 9, Viking, Pathfinder, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the ongoing Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft - visitors will encounter: Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in the solar system; Tharsis Planitia, the "high plains of Mars"; Valles Marineris, an equatorial canyon so vast that America's Grand Canyon would be a mere tributary. Plus: the "face" on mars, the White Rock, the "Canals" of Xanthe - and the first possible evidence of an ancient Martian life-form.
