This took a little while to get into, I know it is Sci-Fi, but barbarian humans on Mars was a bit much for me to swallow at first (and no breathing apparatus or space suits....). That aside toward the end it gets a little interesting.

Nice science fantasy story about a race about to die and the human who would try to prevent it. Short and touching, it's a good read. While I prefer Brackett's Sword and Sorcery stories, I must say this is one of the most thoughtful stories of her's that I've read.
