A six-man crew crash-lands on Eden, fourth planet from another sun. The men find a strange world that grows ever stranger, and everywhere there are images of death. The crew's attempt to communicate with this civilization leads to violence and to a cruel truth—cruel precisely because it is so human. Translated by Marc E. Heine. A Helen and Kurt Wolff Book.
