M-147 THE STARS ARE OURS! Good
The Stars Are Ours!
By Andre Norton
What a great concept is contained in the title alone! In a tyrannized, devastated, nearly illiterate society, a band of free-thinking scientists manage to break out to the stars.
Dard Nordis grew up in a world devastated by atomic catastrophe. The remnants of humanity had set up a brutal dictatorship to hunt out and destroy all scientists, deemed to have been responsible for the disaster. The day came when the secret laboratory of Dard's brother was raided, and he escaped by the skin of his teeth.
Where else could men go to keep the torch of liberty burning? This statement from one of the characters gives a hint:
"Frontiers of any type, physical or mental,
are but a challenge to our breed. Nothing
can stop the questing of men, not even Man.
If we will it, not only the wonders of
space, but the very stars are ours!"
