[The back cover copy]: "Space travel has encompassed Mars, finding it barren, without mineral resources, useful only as a dumping ground for socially unacceptable humanity - a latter-day convict settlement. A new shipment of deportees lands, and the 24 new colonists, male and female alike, have to adjust themselves to the harsh life there, and to the unexpected new social patterns that have developed for defense against the hostile Martian environment. Before long, as the colony is shaken by dangers from within and without, the struggle becomes the most basic of all - not for comfort, but for survival itself."
