(Please note: Unlike Sylvia Engdahl's earlier novels, this is not a Young Adult novel and is not appropriate for children or young teens.) Three hundred people, isolated on a raw new planet in the hope that their psi powers will become the foundation of a culture that can someday shape the future of humankind. If they don't starve first. If they don't lose heart in the face of hardships beyond any they imagined. And if their kids can be reared to believe in the dream and advance both their technology and their psi powers from one generation to the next. Starship captain Jesse Sanders hasn't expected to be responsible for the settlement. Peter is the leader, the visionary on whose inspiration they all depend. But Peter has his hands full, not only with maintaining morale but with grueling ordeals of his own. So the job of ensuring the colony's survival falls on Jesse. And in the end, he must stake his life in a desperate attempt to prevent the loss of all they have gained. Although this novel is a sequel to Stewards of the Flame, it is completely independent and can be read alone. However, reading it first will spoil some of the suspense of the earlier book.
