Dear discuss-lfm members, While visiting a Barnes and Noble Bookseller store I happened to see a brand new resource that I found attractive and readable for ages 12 up. The book is by Martin Caidin (author of over 150 books, many science & sci-fi) & Jay Barbree (former NBC correspondent) (also with Susan Wright). *Destination Mars* is 228 pages and well illustrated, has an index and is copyrighted 1997. ISBN is 0-670-86020-4 and has a book jacket indicated cost of $29.95. The book jacket gives an annotation that states "examines how earthlings have perceived the planet through history in mythology, religion, astrology, folklore, early science histroy, science fiction, and modern era of scientific discovery and space travel." It looked worthwhile and a nice addition to your home library or classroom resources. Sincerely, Jan Wee, Moderator PS: Don't forget your issue of Time Magazine (as Marilyn Wall already mentioned... it's a keeper!! Mars -- Special Report, July 14th, 1997.
