Overview


L. E. Modesitt, Jr's first major work was The Forever Hero trilogy of SF adventure novels published as paperback originals in the 1980s, of which Dawn for a Distant Earth was the first title in the series.  Thousands of years in the future, Earth is a desolate ruin. The first human ship to return in millennia discovers an abandoned wasteland inhabited only by a few degenerate or mutated human outcasts. But among them is a boy of immense native intelligence and determination who is captured, taken in, and educated, and disappears--to grow up to become the force behind a plan to make Earth flower again. He is, if not immortal, at least very long-lived, and he plans to build an independent power base out in the galaxy and force the galactic empire to devote centuries and immense resources to the restoration of the ecology of Earth.

    A tawny and black she cat so skinny you can clearly see her ribs followed by a small just as skinny jet black tom.
    "Help please," said the she cat before collapsing.

    Riversong to soaringstar

    Sir me and my mate i guess you could call us rouges. I think if we want us and are kits to survive we need a clan. But you do have to understand that one of the reasons we are rouges is because my mate is curesed. So i do not know if you want us i your clan. And my mate says he does not do well in clans but i will talk to him if you say yes.
