About the book:
There are planets not meant to be colonized by humans. For three decades they will sleep, while their great colonial starship transports them to what they hope is the perfect world. Their ship is state-of-the-art and totally automatic, allowing the passengers to remain in suspended animation for most of the journey. When they wake, they expect to find a virgin planet, unspoiled by the hands of man – a world where they can pursue happiness in a safe and free environment. The naive colonists from Earth are both right and incredibly wrong.
