Description

Centuries ago, the people of Earth sent Ship into space. Deep within its core, it carried the seed of humankind....

More than twenty years have passed since Ship left its children on an uninhabited, earthlike planet. Zoheret and her companions have started settlements and had children of their own. But soon after their arrival, Zoheret's old nemesis, Ho, struck out on his own.

When Ho's daughter, fifteen-year-old Nuy, spies three strangers headed toward their home, the hostility between the two groups of old shipmates begins anew. In Pamela Sargent's "Farseed," can the divided settlers face the challenges of adapting to their new environment in spite of their conflicts?
