Mars is My Destination
Frank Belknap LONG (1901 - 1994)

... source of incalculable wealth for humanity—and deadly danger for those who tried to get it!
... in Earth's night sky, a symbol of the god of war—in this tense novel of the future, a vivid setting for stirring action! - From the Book Blurb
