Summary (From the publisher):

Jenkins was a loyal servant--the best that money could buy, or man could create. Jenkins was a robot. He was built to be the perfect worker, tireless and uncomplaining, but quite unexpectedly he also became a close companion to generation after generation of his owners as the human race matured, moved beyond the confines of its one tiny planet, and eventually changed beyond all recognition. And then, because he was a faithful and dutiful servant, Jenkins went on to serve Earth's inheritors. . .
