The planet Gehrig was discovered in the year 3118 and was named after a legendary player of an antique game.  Its name came about when a surveyor, who was a history buff, orbited the planet and noticed that its single continent and single ocean were shaped approximately like the coverings on an old-fashioned baseball.  He later researched the game and discovered that one of its heroes had been a man named Lou Gehrig.  The surveyor proposed naming the planet Gehrig and the name stuck.  

Gehrig, however, was found to be a planet without exploitable resources and one with violent and fearsome native wildlife.  It was thus ignored until 3750 when the Galactic Committee chose to make it a prison planet: a dumping place for the worst of the worst.

Dave Welch was improperly convicted of a series of horrendous murders and banished to the planet Gehrig.  This novel is the story of his life, his discoveries, and what he does with them.
