The 'Spaceman Chant' turned from a spirited to a heartbreaking refrain when Cadet Peter Hodges learned that he would never be allowed to 'thunder off to Io.' Bitter disappointment, to a youth whose father had been one of the first space captains, motivates this gripping tale of the future. Studded with details of the spaceports, ships and men that handle interplanetary flight, 'Earthbound' is the very human drama of a disillusioned cadet forced by circumstances to help plunder the very space liners he was trained to protect.
