I'm currently reading the Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. I'm just in the beginning of the story, they just landed and Nadia just lost her little finger.
I'm quite disoriented by the description of the landscapes and I found the mars map included with the book particularly hard to read and unhelpful. I just remembered the existence of Google mars and I found it was a real improvement on the included mars map; I immediately located the 3 aligned volcano that where described. But I'm still disoriented.
Could someone pin-point me exactly where they landed and where they are building the first settlement?
