(From the publisher):
When the Terran starship Explorator IV reached the planet Tschai, its crew didn't know what to expect. Tschai was so far from Earth that the distress signal which had brought them here must have taken centuries to reach them. Whatever cataclysm had threatened this planet was probably long past. So they went in orbit around Tschai, and sent a man named Adam Reith down to explore in a scout-boat. Suddenly a gray projectile darted up from the planet and Explorator IV was blown to bits. Reith's scout-boat hurtled out of control to crash-land on the planet below. Injured and alone on this alien world, Reith faced dangers he could not even imagine. But Reith was not a man to give up - and he had a deadly score to settle with someone...or something...on the planet Tschai.
