Two bestselling novels of science fiction adventure from legendary storyteller Andre Norton collected together for the first time: "The Iron Cage" and "Breed to Come". In "The Iron Cage", Johnny has always loved and been protected by the People, the bearlike inhabitants on the planet he calls home. But when a starship arrives carrying Johnny's original species, humans - humans who seek to exploit the People for their own ends - Johnny is forced to choose between loyalty to the creatures he considers his family, and the need to reconnect with his long lost heritage. And, in "Breed to Come", on a distant future Earth, humans have polluted the planet and departed, leaving their pets behind to inherit a blasted world. But from that devastated past, a new breed of intelligence arises: the catlike People. Now humans return and the People are in no mood to deal once again with the "demons" who abandoned them to fate so long ago.
