EARTH

A meticulous, high-minded little fable about a no-touch, group-think space traveler from a futuristic Earth who lands on a planet of the same name. Here humans in primitive organization, with names like ""Boy"" and ""Lady"" have created, away from pollution and arid ground, a fertile though rugged environment. There's a lesson here (one pioneer is named ""Ecol"") and the spaceman learns something about feeling, independence, and history. He inter-clones the two Earths for the future of both. Pure but earnest.
