This is where the frail young Van Humphries must go-or die trying. Years before, Van's older brother perished in the first attempt to land a man on Venus.Van's father has always hated him for being the one to survive. To everyone's surprise, Van takes up the offer. But what Van Humphries will find on Venus will change everything-our understanding of Venus, of global warming on Earth, and his knowledge of who he is. Condition: Binding - fine, like new.
