A really great book about the lives of these creatures, the Ja'anata and the Runao living on Rhakat, with a healing Emilio Sandoz former Jesuit priest making a second trip from Earth. It sounds spacey, but it's very real and relatable. The author is an anthropologist, and you can just see every bit of how she is creating these people and their society and how it's built and how the politics work, etc. Endlessly fascinating and very wonderful book. Must read! (after finishing "The Sparrow" that is).
