"In the eyes of the inhabitants of Giri the scientific explorers from outer space were witlings. . . . Because on Giri a perculiarity of evolution had given a special talent to all living things -- and this talent made unnecessary most of the inventions associated with intelligent life elsewhere. Roads and planes, engines and doors . . . these were the products of witlings, not of 'normal' people. The problem was . . . to demonstrate that science was worthwhile and to keep the medieval masters of Giri from realizing their potential for cosmic mischief." Cover is somewhat scuffed and darkened. Some foxing, a few pages are creased and speckled in the upper right corner.; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
