about

Phssthpok the Pak had been traveling for most of his thirty-two thousand years. His mission: save, develop, and protect the group of Pak breeders sent out into space some two and a half million years before...

Brennan was a Belter, the product of a fiercely independent, somewhat anarchic society living in, on, and around an outer asteroid belt. The Belters were rebels, one and all, and Brennan was a smuggler. The Belt worlds had been tracking the Pak ship for days -- Brennan figured to meet that ship first...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thought provoking This is a tale of known space. The Pak built Ringworld. For non-Niven fans this is actually an unusual take on parenthood and human motivation and, ultimately, the meaning of life. Although Niven does not explicitly address these themes, they are the core of the story. For me this is one of the best science fiction offerings of the 20th century...a true buried treasure.
