    Half-Navajo geologist Jamie Waterman has been selected for the ground team of the first manned expedition to our mysterious neighbor planet. Joining an international team of astronauts and scientists, he endures the rigors of training, the dangers of traveling an incredible distance in space, the challenges of an alien landscape, and the personal and political conflicts that arise when the team must face the most shocking discovery of all.

    "GREAT LISTEN"
    Overall

    I am pleasantly surprised as to the entertainment that Mars has given me. It does seem to be a bit heavy on politics and not enough 'Tars Tarkas.' But what I really enjoyed was the quality of the reader. Stefan Rudnicki did an excellent job in his reading. He was the right voice for this Book. I am looking forward to listening to more about this venture and other audiobooks by Stefan.

    The White Company is a motley group of English mercenaries, fighting under the leadership of Sir Nigel Loring. Bound by an unquestioning respect for social order, patriotism, and a lust for adventure, the company makes its way to France to fight in the local wars. Encountering pirate ships and other dramas during their crossing, they finally land at Bordeaux and become involved with the fighting at the siege of Chateau of Villefranch du Perigord and in the Spanish Pyrenees.

    Overall

    What a wonderful story!

    At first I was somewhat nervous in purchasing this book, but should have known better, with Doyle being one of my favorite authors.

    The story flows well in the classic sense. And the characters were well developed.

    The narrator did an excellent job in making all of the characters 'come alive.'

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys great classics.
