Long before Avatar, Ursula K. Le Guin was writing science fiction with a strong ecological edge, the benchmark of which was the 1973 novella, "The Word for World is Forest." Now, with the continuing trend toward human rights and green issues, the time is right for new fans to be moved by this Hugo-winning classic.

In this thought-provoking story, the existence of the peaceful Athsheans is altered when their world is conquered by the bloodthirsty yumens. Pressed into servitude, they find themselves at the mercy of their brutal masters...until desperation leads them to launch a retaliatory strike.

But in defending their lives, they will threaten the very foundations of their society. And once the killing starts, there is no turning back.
