The first manned mission to Mars was always going to be difficult. Hostile conditions, bickering and self doubt amongst the mission team and the also rans.
Then there is all the politics at home. All this has to be faced by Jamie Madison, half-breed Navaho indian and expeditions last minute replacement geologist.
Well, actually he causes most of them.

Hard Sci/Fi and political manipulations abound in an absorbing adventure story, topped by a little disaster to qualify for the action.
