Honath the Pursemaker doesn't believe the story in the Book of Laws which claims that giants created his race of tree-dwellers. He and his friends are banished when he makes this opinion known.  They are sent to the floor of the jungle, which is full of danger.  He becomes an explorer/settler for this new world.
