The future of humanity includes transhumans, higher and lower castes, space travel, war — and one human man, born of a woman from Earth, who became Commander-General Jaxson Grant in the military caste.

A mix of classic space opera and romantic saga, Born of Woman is a fast-paced story you won’t be able to put down.

Plenty of Seuss as well as other children’s authors. However, it was the family purchase of the World Book Encyclopedia that grabbed my attention.
