Summary

The Amar discovered Earth in 2644 BC, arrogantly taking specimens, human and animal, back to their home world. They also took their doom - measles - which claimed 89% of their population. A single planetary culture arises as the Amar recreate their society. The humans, the sole occupants of a dead continent, survive, reproduce, and create their own society. When discovered, the humans are too numerous to repatriate to Earth. The Amar adopt them into their society. When the Amar can again space-travel, the humans are denied repatriation as, now technologically advanced, they would disrupt the independent development of Earth. Also the Amar are ashamed of their earlier abductions. Yet the humans desire a home of their own.
