Blue Sunset looks back on the first settlers on Mars. Their triumphs and failures, their loves and losses. Earth sent the good and the bad, the thoughtful and the clueless, the doers and the quitters, the lovers and the leaders, the vigilantes and the virtuous. The red planet changed them. Their epitaphs tell their stories while the universe has the initial last word on this first settlement.
