(From the publisher):
What had the gentle Sawls done to deserve Fiix's vicious climate and murderous terrain? Why were they so primitive when around them lay the evidence of a majestic ancient culture?
Marooned on Fiix, the Terran scientific expedition from Earth faced a mystery more profound than all its advanced technology and expertise could solve. But the mystery had to be solved: before the prospector Clausen devastated the planet in search of its priceless ore; before the raging vagaries of the weather wiped out both Terrans and Sawls once and for all.
