New introduction by Moshe Feder and David G. Hartwell. "A lost Elizabethan colony in sixteenth-century Virginia was transported to a far planet which has been named Dare. Centuries later, the colonists still lead a backward, agrarian existence. The hero falls in love with a humanoid alien woman, and this moves him to rebel against his straitlaced society. A pleasant morality tale, written in the 1950s but not published at that time." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 86.
