Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The best space colonization saga to come along in decades.”—Rocky Mountain News
 
“A rich blend of personal and political storytelling.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“With echoes of the work of Gordon Dickson and Clifford Simak, Steele offers myriad kinds of thrills.”—Science Fiction Weekly
 
“Steele does not disappoint…he expresses deep concern for the directions—political, ideological, economic, and environmental—in which we are moving today.”—Analog
 
“Allen Steele is at his best with this deep moral yet action-packed character driven science fiction thriller.”—Baryon
 
“Has an even more Heinleinish flavor than does either Coyote or Coyote Rising.”—Booklist
Publishers Weekly
Steele's trilogy about human settlers on an alien planet facing practical and moral challenges comes to a fitting close. The Coyote Federation is a healthy democracy now, but its citizens still depend on the products of Earth's technology. Earth, meanwhile, is sliding into ecological disaster and craves raw materials and room for emigrants. The two sides need each other, but it's unclear whether people have learned enough-or can control themselves well enough-to avoid making selfish little decisions like the ones that devastated humanity's birthplace. Shifting deftly among several characters, Hugo-winner Steele respects the various viewpoints keeping the debate fluid, but he also makes plausible that opposing individuals could grudgingly learn to respect each other enough to modify their rigid plans. As in the first two books in this popular SF series, Coyote and Coyote Rising, another major actor is the mysterious planet itself, which invites people to find new ways to think. (Dec.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
