The message had seemed simple, yet it was more complex than Don could have imagined. He was being called from Earth to an alien world for reasons unknown—save only that his life depended on it.

Overview

The message had seemed simple, yet it was more complex than Don could have imagined. He was being called from Earth to an alien world for reasons unknown—save only that his life depended on it.
But setting out for Mars and getting there in good shape turned out to be a lot more complicated than Don ever would have guessed possible. It was trouble enough being inexplicably hounded by Earth's secret police.
But when he was hijacked by Venusian rebels, Don suddenly realized that he was trapped in the center of a war between worlds that could change the fate of the Solar System forever!

Between Planets. I first read it in about 1962 when I was the ripe old age of about twelve years old. I had been very fond of Mr. Heinlein's stories for several years, because my classroom teacher was a great fan of reading aloud to the class. One of the first books he chose to read for us was Have Spacesuit Will Travel. I loved the fact that Mr. Heinlein did not talk down to people just because they were young. I knew, as did most of my peers, how to use a dictionary. The story was appealing with some lovely alien beings, dragons, little fauns which were extremely affectionate, and Martians-----real live Martians. I didn't see how anyone could fail to be enchanted with a cast of characters including these folks. Not to mention the fact that Don had a telephone that could go out on a trail ride in New Mexico and take the phone with him. What a concept. There was also the usual dose of moral discussion, whichMr. Heinlein wrote with a fairly light hand, but with definite beliefs about moral rectitude, and he made this part of the story just as interesting as the "alien" folks. Wow. I can give no higher praise than to say that I would have been extremely honored to have had Mr. Heinlein as a father, uncle, friend, or mentor. And I still love his work.

The story of Donald Harvey a young man caught in a revolutionary war. Though the science dated and we now know that there is no intelligent life on Mars and Venus it doesn't detract from the excellent story telling and points that Heinlein was trying make. Its a story about men doing what they must to secure there freedom.
