Book Description:

A classic work of science fiction from a master storyteller

From the Back Cover:

What could be more commonplace than grass, or a world covered over all its surface with numberless wind-whipped oceans of grass? But the planet Grass conceals horrifying secrets within its endless pastures. 'Grass' is a major work of fiction from Sheri S. Tepper.

'An incurable plague has spread to all inhabited planets but one. No one knows why the prairie-world of Grass is exempt. The imperial power of Earth, a Mormon-like religion called Sanctity, despatches the Yrarier family to snoop around. They are horsey types; the rulers of Grass are understood to hunt. And so they do, but not for foxes, and not on horseback. The true nature of things – the hunters, the hunted, and the fields over which they fly – resists unravelling. But slowly, horribly, deliciously, the truth falls out.'
