[Read by Tom Parker - aka - Grover Gardner]

The artifact is a vast circular ribbon of matter, some 180 million miles across, with a sun at its center. Pierson's puppeteers--strange, three-legged, two-headed aliens--discovered this ''Ringworld'' in a hitherto unexplored part of the galaxy. Curious about the immense structure, but frightened by the prospect of meeting the builders, they set about assembling a team to explore it:

-Louis Wu, human -- old and bored with having lived too fully for too many years, seeking an adventure, and all too capable of handling it.

-Nessus, puppeteer -- a trembling coward from a species with an inbuilt survival pattern of nonviolence. This particular puppeteer, however, is insane.

-Speaker-to-Animals, kzin -- large, orange-furred, and carnivorous. The kzin are one of the most savage life-forms known.

The party's expedition, however, goes disastrously wrong when their ship crash-lands and its motley crew faces a daunting trek across thousands of miles of Ringworld territory.

From the Inside Flap:

A new place is being built, a world of huge dimensions, encompassing millions of miles, stronger than any planet before it. There is gravity, and with high walls and its proximity to the sun, a livable new planet that is three million times the area of the Earth can be formed. We can start again!
