    Cover illustration for the 1957 Scribner's edition. Thorby, a young slave boy, is purchased by Baslim the Cripple, a beggar on Jubbulpore, capital of the Sargony of the Nine Worlds. Baslim raises Thorby as a son. When Baslim is executed by the Sargonese authorities as a spy, Thorby leaves with the captain of the Sisu, a Free Trader merchant vessel. Thorby is adopted by the Free Traders but then passed to a Terran Hegemony naval ship, as directed by Baslim's last instructions. Thorby is enlisted and spends time in the Guard ship until it is discovered that he is the lost heir to a fabulous fortune on Earth.
