Published in 1978 by Ballantine Books, TWiR deals with a world called Patra-Bannk (known otherwise as Freeze-Burn), and a crew of explorers from another world named Two-bit (because life is cheap there), seeking a treasure of metallic hydrogen.
This is complicated when they crash into a cliff. They are found and cared for by the locals, a group called the Ta-tjenen.
