The epic story of the first permanent human settlement on the moon
Brilliant, driven, visionary, former astronaut Paul Stavanger seizes his chance to colonize the last frontier, creating a viable, flourishing, nearly self-sufficient community at Moonbase. And when his son Douglas comes of age, his determination to carry on where his father left off brings him to Moonbase, and a crisis that can only be resolved by his triumph - or its destruction.
Harsh, dangerous, strangely beautiful, the Moon becomes a living presence, leading the Stavangers and their enemies onwardds to glory, to disaster and ultimately, to a new future for mankind.
Heady oxygen is breathed into old bones as Bova colonises the Moon. - Scotland on Sunday, 15.12.96
