Geoffrey A. Landis had been a major figure in hard SF for over a decade before delivering this a novel-length work of SF - an epic of human tenacity and survival in the early days of manned Mars exploration. After a treacherous failed landing, one crew's only hope of survival lies in trekking halfway across the surface of Mars itself... a journey to the limits of human endurance. And in the process, what was unknown about each of them will be revealed and only the truth will save them from a terrible death far from home.

Landis writes a decent, but implausible book about an error filled trip to Mars after multiple previous failed trips to Mars. The initial set-up is quite believable and the characters are strong and full of human spirit, but the end trek, that of the title, would never happen; certainly not without the help of significant pieces of equipment or help from Earth they didn't have. Landis' writing is decent and I made it all the way through, but the extremely short chapters and the fact that I wasn't fully engaged with the characters were taking a toll on the likeability of the novel.
