Summary

Time is running out for the passengers and crew of the tourist cruiser Selene, incarcerated in a sea of choking lunar dust.

On the surface her rescuers find their resources stretched to the limit by the mercilessly unpredictable conditions of a totally alien environment.

©1961 Arthur C. Clarke (P)2016 W F Howes Ltd

As good as I remember it. I first read it in the 1960s as part of my growing love for Clarke.
