Dream-Weaver by Louise Lawrence
This story is about an earth boy on a ship going to colonize another planet and a girl that lives on that planet. The boy is appalled by the idea of making the locals slaves and destroying the planet the way ours was destroyed. The girl has the power to travel in a dream state like others in her peaceful society. They meet while she is dream travelling and discover he is heading to her planet. They and others on her planet must figure out how to deal with the approaching ship. Should they let it land and deal with the evils it will bring or force it to go somewhere else? This story is about working toward a greater good and the human fear toward things not understood. It is an ecellent story of love and betrayal with important thought-provoking themes and issues.
