    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 wit the challenge of carving a civilization out of the wilderness.

    A good story. First read this in 1967 just when i was starting to discover Science fiction. while written for teen age kids of the 50s and 60s it holds up very well. The survival lessons and the group Dynamics work well. .

    The main Character going from a green kid to a leader.
