This imaginative and fast-moving sequel to ""The Book of the River"" continues the adventures of Yaleen, riverwoman extraordinary on a strange distant world. She has established mental contact and rapport with the Worm-the creature whose body forms the Black Current which runs the length of the river by whose banks the human colonists dwell-and has become a heroine of her people. From the Worm she has learned of a place called Eeden, whence the colonists originally came, and to which (it is said) their souls return after death.
