Summary (From the publisher):

The humans settling a forest world see it as nothing other than a vast natural resource, one to be tamed and broken. The gentle, peaceful natives have been enslaved. Until one of the creechies, outraged beyond tolerance, convinces the forest people to fight back. This is the story of their war against the bloodthirsty 'yumans' and its consequences for both people.
