When two cultures clash...
After leaving Earth, a human colony starts a new life on a planet they have baptised Mars II — currently occupied by the Darztls, a highly intelligent indiginous race of lizards. Although initial attempts are made to tolerate each others’ presence, both races quickly move toward mutual disdain, distrust and finally, acts of violence.

Translated from the French edition, Terre des Autres, by Sheryl Curtis.
“Well-written, the story will appear to the reader of science fiction as well as students of history, colonialism, and race relations. A gripping tale of the shock and misunderstandings arising when two very different cultures clash.” — Ronald Hore, CM Magazine
“I loved reading this in its original French version.... It is not written in the typical linear fashion that most of us are used to.... A must-read also for the interesting literary devices she uses.” — tboyjacky, wordpress
