McDevitt, Jack  
Thunderbird
A working stargate found in North Dakota leads to three mysterious destinations: an apparently empty garden world; a strange maze of underground passages; and a space station with a view of a galaxy that seems to be in the Milky Way. The race to claim the stargate quickly escalates, but questions about what it means for humanity's role in the galaxy cannot be ignored - especially since travel through it isn't necessarily one way.
