Earth is an old planet, and her teeming masses are running out of resources...and time. A path to the stars seems the only answer and it is up to men such as Jeff Holman to discover a haven for Earth's millions. Altair VI is one such planet, and Holman is determined to transform this world into one where the human race can survive.|
But in terrafroming the planet, Holman discovers that Altair VI holds a terrible secret, and he is faced with a soul-wrenching decision--for to make Altair VI habitable for human, all native life must die.
Including a race that is as intelligent as man.
