A young woman (Beth) leads a science research team on a distant world at the same time as another team, protected by a large armed force, mine for precious ore. The science team genetically modify some members of one species, ape-like bipeds, to help provide labour. When the ruthless leader of the mining camp (Catanda) decides he will keep some of the ore for his personal gain, and he exterminates members of another mining group, the peaceful people of the science camp find themselves pitched in deadly conflict with Catanda and the armed forces.
They seek refuge among the ape-people as a struggle begins for all their survival when Catanda threatens to exterminate them. They appear to have little hope of winning a conflict against a superior and technological armed force.
A story of immortal love, ruthlessness, and the endless struggle of good against evil set in the jungle and desert of a young world.
