The spaceship Charles Wilkes is strewn over thousands of miles of inhospitable terrain on planet 55-Cnc-g. Twelve crew and scientists survived the crash. Eleven make it out of the frozen mountains to lower elevation. They split into two groups, one heading down river into a canyon, the other into low hills, so one group might have a better chance to survive. Poorly equipped and starving both move indomitably forward.
They find two sentient species, one similar to man, the other so dissimilar they find it hard to believe them sentient. Then they discover that aliens inhabited the planet centuries ago and enslaved the Esterancasts, the man-like species. Plus the aliens had brought thousands of Inca and unimaginable technology to mine and fashion gold, and then suddenly left with the Inca. Intent to understand the aliens and why they left, the humans, the Esterancasts and the Tentacled Creatures, quite unlike man, loosely band together. Their common purpose leads to disbelief, anger, frustration, death and finally realization. What they find has several staggering implications for everyone’s future, but man must to return to Earth.
