"Quite and adventure tale, a love story, and a damned good ecological drama!"
The jungles of the planet Ver Day were unforgiving to natives--and death for offworlders. Sled-hauler Sal banks didn't like to have to depend on anyone or anything, but she needed extra muscle to pull a sled on her next cargo run, so she hired Meesha Raschad first and found out he wa

Amazing imagination and well-written also. Had heard and read this author just 'disappeared' & that this book was a good read. It was a GREAT read!
Ver Day is a jungle planet, crawling with bugs and bities, dripping with mud, sap, and poison. Original settlement there was so difficult only a small minority survived, adapting to living on the planet. They're known as 'greenies' and have a green flush to their skin thanks to eating the local plants.

Ver Day is going through a time of transition - population has increased in the few cities, and off-world immigration is on the rise. A push is being made to change the long-standing laws which lim

On the planet Ver Day, tensions are rising between immigrant "newbies" and the First Settlers, the planet's majority population of green-skinned Luddite deep ecologists. Greenie packer Sal Banks doesn't know Meesha Raschad is a newbie when she hires him to help haul her cargo through the jungle, and Raschad doesn't quite appreciate the trouble he is bringing on Sal by accompanying her through the green backlands, where newbie-hatred runs high and Ver Day's terrifying native fauna runs wild.

I have enjoyed reading this book. I have purchased five different copies because of rereading. It has a few typos in the book but you can tell what they were really saying. This book would definately make an excellent sci-fi movie. I would have loved a second book following up on all the issues that he was going to aid the planet in dealing with the short comings of their government.

Recommends it for: If you like science-fiction and/or adventure, you'll love this.
I adore this book and have read it many times. Not only does she create a fantastic enviroment and culture, but it's also an excellent adventure story. Heald packs her story lot of detail that doesn't slow down the momentum of the story, but provides the reader with a wonderful surprises each time they read the book.

A very interesting story with a rugged smart female leader, the off world male trying to prove himself, a cast of gruffy characters in a world with other kinds of life living in a with the surrounding jungle.

I truly love this book. I wish there was something else by this author, that it was available on Kindle and on Audio. My paperback copy is falling apart and I'd better buy a replacement while I can still find it. I reread it once or twice a year.
