The Green Hills of Earth

Audiobook

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 Earth is 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.
