Nebula award winner

In 2198, one hundred and fifty years after the desperate wars that destroyed an overpopulated Earth, Man lives precariously on a hundred hastily-established colony worlds and in the seven giant Ships that once ferried men to the stars.

Mia Havero’s Ship is a small, closed society. It tests its children by casting them out to live or die in a month of Trial in the hostile wilds of a colony world. Mia Havero’s Trial is fast approaching and in the meantime she must learn not only the skills that will keep her alive but the deeper courage to face herself and her world.

"I am very impressed"
Roger Zelazny

"Panshin writes with vigour, charm, wit and the power of a born storyteller"
Robert Silverberg

"Full of fascinating detail and well drawn characters"
Punch
