Description

Only the infinite historical experiences of teeming Terra offered a guide to the problems faced by the future imitators of Christopher Columbus and Captain Cook.

The was very obvious in the case of the fifth planet-colony to be visited by the recontact ship Daedalus. For the struggle for food had become better and hard and the main human colony had slid back to grim fundamentals. The Earth parallel lay in the presence across an "impassable" ocean of another continent, another human colony, long isolated and alienated. The solution was there - the voyage had to rival that of Columbus - and all the clever science brought from far-away Earth would be no substitute for old-fashioned courage and pioneering risk.
