The Taflak are an alien, tripodal race that lives on a world smothered in greenery gone wild - thousands of kilometers deep at the equator. In this adventure we find clues to what caused the growth, and what the planet was like before.
Science fiction in a libertarian-philosophy vein.
The first few chapters overlap the last few chapters of BrightSuit MacBear. In fact, both Middle C and Goldberry, characters from BrightSuit MacBear, become major characters in this story.
Here is the funny part. When I first red this story years ago I knew nothing about the Confederacy Series or about L. Neil Smith. I enjoyed the story, then years later found The Probability Broach and only now have linked the book to the author. Taflak Lysandra is a adventure story, first and last, set in a different universe. Once again, you could read it as a stand alone, like I did so many years ago, or as part of the greater whole, like I just finished doing.
Similar plot line to most of the others. Free and highly armed individuals whip evil pro-government conspirators.
