Wheelworld by Harry Harrison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Even though we get the feeling that the planet is brutal, at least through conversation, this isn't an immersive terraforming/crop-saving SF that ends in revolution against the ruling (and reality-ignoring) elite.
So? Is it any good?
Well, it's a farmer-led revolution on an alien planet, saving the social structure and changing the way things are done for the benefit of men and women. It's pretty light, fast-paced, and satisfying if you have a taste for rising up and pulling the rest of your downtrodden farmers up by their bootlaces.
