Book Description HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, United States, 1991. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.A six-man crew crash-lands on Eden, fourth planet from another sun. The men find a strange world that grows ever stranger: a desert plain exuding acrid vapors, a greenish tinge at the horizon, a gray seven-foot tree that hisses and withdraws into the ground when touched, and thickets of vegetation like hanging spiders.In a labyrinth of plant-shaped buildings are dead ends, passage-ways, domes, vaulted ceilings, and giant statues. And everywhere there are images of death: mass graves, naked bodies in ditches and wells, a beehive structure filled with clusters of giant eggs -- a skeleton within each egg.The crew s attempt to communicate with this civilization leads to violence and to a cruel truth -- cruel precisely because it is so human.
