Summary
In 2198, one hundred and fifty years after the desperate wars that destroyed an overpopulated Earth, humanity lives precariously on a hundred hastily-established colony worlds and in the seven giant Ships that once ferried people to the stars. Mia Havero's Ship is a small, closed society. It tests its children by casting them out to live or die in a month of Trial in the hostile wilds of a colony planet. Mia's fourteenth birthday and accompanying Trial are fast approaching; in the meantime she must learn not only the skills that will keep her alive but the deeper courage to face herself and her world.Originally published in 1968, Alexei Panshin's Nebula Award-winning classic has lost none of its relevance, with its keen exploration of societal stagnation and the resilience of youth
