Tunnel in the Sky

by Robert A. Heinlein

When Rod Walker decides to take the final test for “Deacon” Matson's interplanetary survival course, he knows he will be facing life-or-death situations on an unsettled planet. What he doesn't expect is that something will go wrong with the “Tunnel in the Sky” and he and his fellow students will not be able to return to Terra.

Stranded on a hostile planet, Rod and his friends are faced with the challenge of carving a civilization out of the wilderness. They must deal with hunger, deprivation, and strangely savage beasts. But the bigger question is, can they survive each other?

This science fiction classic pits a savage world against the most untameable beast of all: the human animal. Chock full of high adventure, futuristic speculation, witty repartee, and profound philosophy, Tunnel in the Sky represents the greatest SF writer of all time at his peak.

"The reading is well directed so that it captures the conflicts, the dangers, and the triumphs of Roderick and his companions."
    — SoundCommentary January, 2012
"David Baker supplies a solid narrative foundation while the cast of Full Cast Audio provides more than two-dozen clear and separate teenaged character voices that capture the youthful, wide-eyed spirit of this 1955 sci-fi classic. Heinlein is a master at using dialogue to present his ideals and philosophies, and when TUNNEL IN THE SKY is heard aloud, one hears the optimism, vision, and smart swagger that are the hallmarks of his best work."

Praise for the print version of Tunnel in the Sky:
