Foreigner: (10th Anniversary Edition) (Google eBook)
The first book in C.J.Cherryh's eponymous series, Foreigner begins an epic tale of the survivors of a lost spacecraft who crash-land on a planet inhabited by a hostile, sentient alien race. From its beginnings as a human-alien story of first contact, the Foreigner series has become a true science fiction odyssey, following a civilization from the age of steam through early space flight to confrontations with other alien species in distant sectors of space. It is the masterwork of a truly remarkable author.
The long-running Foreigner series can also be enjoyed by more casual genre readers in sub-trilogy installments.

Review: Foreigner (Foreigner #1)User Review - Doug Piero - Goodreads
This was the Harry topic for the April 2014 Harry SF Club meeting. Great fun, if needing a little editing. Don't know that I'll try for the whole series, but I might yet. I do like Cherryh's writing. Read full review
