The Martian Chronicles

The Martian Chronicles The Green Morning Summary

  • Meet Benjamin Driscoll.
  • He's having a hard time breathing, because the air on Mars is so thin for comfort. 
  • So, he plants some trees. 
  • Unfortunately it's so dry that the trees don't grow. (Check out "Symbols" for more about Mars's drought.)
  • But one night, it rains. In the morning, the trees suddenly spring up, fully grown.
