Clifford Simak, winner of Hugo, Nebula, Grand Master, and other science fiction awards, was never more clearly a master of modern SF than in this novel of a simple farmer who bridged the gap between humanity and the stars. This powerfully entertaining and thought-provoking work is one of the all-time great favorites of science fiction.
