(From the publisher):
Carson Napier had plotted his course to Mars with the greatest care. His rocket ship was the very best that human ingenuity could devise. He was as well-prepared as any man could possibly be.
His only fear was that some inconceivable factor might interfere and drive him to another planet. Perhaps the inhospitable Venus: - all astronomers agreed that it could have no oxygen and no life.
During his solitary flight the impossible happened. Carson Napier found himself heading for the barren world of Venus. And that was just the beginning of his adventures!
