Shelves: sci-fi, racconto
Racconto vincitore di un Premio Nebula e nominato per un Premio Hugo, pubblicato postumo nel 1966.
Ambientato durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale, ha come protagonista un geologo lasciato a controllare uno scavo nel deserto,.studiato da scienziati e militari per un fantomatico giacimento di uranio.
Uranio trovato in possesso di un ragazzo morto in quel tratto di deserto e, nonostante tutte le ricerche, impossibile da trovare.

Racconto breve ma di effetto, precursore di argomenti in voga ancora oggi.

RICHARD MCKENNA was born and raised in the small desert town of Mountain Home, Idaho. In 1931, at the age of eighteen, he enlisted in the United States Navy and served for ten years in Asia. Two of those years were on a Yangtze River gunboat. During this time he heard many firsthand accounts of the 1925-1927 Chinese Revolution which he put to use in The Sand Pebbles.
