Strangers from the Sky Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Strangers from the Sky

A wonderful story about the Vulcan people making first contact with earth after observing us for years. Much soul-searching from both human and alien viewpoints on what to do in a truly unique situation. Not an easy read because of complicated multiple story lines but the stories mesh perfectly in the end.
