Rocannon's World

by Ursula K. Le Guin
Release date: 1966
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

The peaceful planet called Fomalhaut II, peopled with lovely dark-skinned, golden-haired humanoids, elvish Fiia, and mysterious Clayfolk, was just an interesting assignment to anthropologist Rocannon – until an invading force attacked the planet with a technology the natives could not hope to match.

The only factor that the invaders had not taken into account was the presence of Rocannon himself. Rallying the natives around him, Rocannon sets out to turn the enemy's power back against its own forces, and to prove that the technology of war is no match for courage and love of freedom.
