Summary:

We pray for one last landingOn the globe that gave us birth;Let us rest our eyes on the fleecy skiesAnd the cool, green hills of Earth.

The Green Hills of Earthis a collection of short stories from one of the masters of science fiction who has held readers spellbound for over thirty years. This collection includes 'Delilah and the Space-Rigger,' 'Space-Jockey,' 'The Long Watch,' 'Gentlemen Be Seated,' 'The Black Pits of Luna,' 'It's Great to Be Back,' ''—We Also Walk Dogs,'' 'Ordeal in Space,' 'The Green Hills of Earth,' and 'Logic of Empire.'

The arching sky is callingSpacemen back to their trade.All hands! Stand by! Free falling!And the lights below us fade.

Out ride the sons of Terra,Far drives the thundering jet,Up leaps a race of Earthmen,Out, far, and onward yet —

We've tried each spinning space moteAnd reckoned its true worth:Take us back again to the homes of menOn the cool, green hills of Earth.

    I was pleasantly surprised by these stories. I had thought they would be more dated and while that was true for some of the technology, it was not true for the keen observance of humans in and out of space. I also enjoyed the descriptions of our next-door neighbors in our galaxy, mainly the Martians, Venerians and Lunies (colonists). My favorite short story was the one about the lunar colonists who decided to 're-home' to Earth and what they experienced. A very well observed study of human behavior. My second favorite one was about the lawyer and wealthy earthling being sent to Venus. All alone those two stories are well worth listening to the audio book.
