This is one of the best novels I've ever read. It's labeled science fiction and it is but the writer focuses on creating interesting characters and putting them into tough situations to see what happens. At under 200 pages this is a short read that you can finish in one weekend - why this has never been made into a movie I couldn't tell you. Written in the 1960's Schmitz was great at writing, intelligent and tough female heroes and this is his best work!

I have owned a paperback copy since about 1970 or 1971, in high school, and I still read this book and my other James H. Schmitz title, 'Witches of Karres,' about once a year. My old copy is getting yellow, though, so time for a new copy. The female protagonist is a scientist working on a water world of floating plant islands, which has been invaded by aliens who think she is superhuman. Schmitz has created an entire ecosystem of plants and animals for his planet, with an engaging survival story.

It is a classic of science fiction by one of the top science fiction writers. Having said that, I got it because I am doing a survey of books that have otters, and these in this book are just flunkies.
It is well written.
