THE WORD FOR WORLD IS FOREST.

New York: Published by Berkley Publishing Corporation Distributed by G. P. Putnam's Sons, [1976]. Octavo, cloth. First separate edition. Signed by Le Guin on the title page. "Violent humans attempt to colonize an Edenic planet, where the alien natives live in harmony with their forest. It's obviously a parable of American involvement in Vietnam, but it's also a moving work of SF -- linked to Le Guin's 'Hainish' cycle of novels and stories." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 426. This novella, first published in AGAIN, DANGEROUS VISIONS (1972) edited by Harlan Ellison, won the 1973 Hugo award. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-646.
