As a jungle is clear cut in the far east, a team from a drug company work desperately to find plants that may be turned into medicines. But they find something altogether different and truly spectacular: a group of six abandoned infants. They aren?t human?and they aren?t apes, either. Could they be Orang Tanda, the legendary people of the forest who are believed to have been extinct for thousands of years?

The scientists spirit them off to the United States and raise them in extreme secrecy in a facility in Texas. They?re highly intelligent and because they?re not human they can be bought and sold. As such, they are incredibly valuable, but only if they will breed offspring, and that?s a problem.

Enter primatologist Beth Cooke, brought in to get them making babies. But she finds the company?s plans a grotesque nightmare and vows to free them instead.

But can she? And if she does, what will happen to these six strange and brilliant creatures when they face the modern world?

This is a story unlike any other, about hope, about human courage in an impossible situation, and, above all, about looking up at the sky for the first time, with eyes that are truly new.
