Book summary: Raising the Stones

1990 BY SHERI S. TEPPER

When the human settlers arrived on Hobbs Land, the native intelligent specvies, the Owlbrit, were already almost extinct. Before the last one died, a few years later, the humans had learned a little of their language, their ideas and theirb religion. It seemed the natural thing for the settlers to maintain the last Owlbrit temple, with the strange statue that was its God. When when that God died - disintegrating overnight - it seemed equally natural to start preparing its replacement. Maire Manone came to Hobbs Land to escape the harsh patriachal religion of Voorstod, but Voorstod hasn't forgotten her - or forgiven her. But the men who arrive on Hobbs Land to find and return Maire to her homeland haven't taken Hobbs Land's God into account.
