Allen Steele‘s novel Coyote is an excellent, hard science fiction novel about the colonization of a new world. It combines politics, adventure and science into a pleasant reading experience. There are some minor discrepancies in the writing (like the river delta described in the trip down to the Equatorial ‘River’ being on the wrong side according to the map) but these are picky things and easily ignored.
The Coyote series was mentioned in two of the sessions I attended at Worldcon 2009, particularly Lots of Planets have a North. Steele was also one of the authors participating in the Atlanta Nights hoax novel I golbed about earlier.
I recommend it and would like to read the rest of the series!
