Red Planet book cover

“we aren’t bound to follow customs that aren’t appropriate to our needs here”

I love Heinlein’s outlook, his TANSTAFL, his liberty, and this extraordinary,naive yet idealistic attitude that if everyone is a gentleman everything is OK. I can’t believe I hadn’t read this one, but it was a rare gem.
