A Woman of the Iron People is an anthropological science fiction novel by American writer Eleanor Arnason, originally published in 1991. It is a first contact story between peoples from a future Earth and an intelligent, furred race of people who live on an unnamed planet far from Earth. Along with White Queen, A Woman of the Iron People won the inaugural James Tiptree Jr. Award in 1991.

I enjoyed reading Arnason's A Woman of the Iron People for its detailed building of a world with a complex . There's no "faster than light".

We learn about this world mainly from the perspective of Nia, the woman of the Iron People in the title, and Lixia, a woman of Chinese heritage born in Hawaii. There's no "faster than light" drive or wormhole or stargate to get them there faster. After they reach SD II, Lixia and seven other humans land and begin to explore the earth-like planet.

Lixia and the members of her human crew are determined not to disturb the life on the planet circling the Star Sigma Draconis which they have begun exploring

Lixia and the members of her human crew are determined not to disturb the life on the planet circling the Star Sigma Draconis which they have begun exploring. But the factions on the mother ship hovering above the planet may create an unintended chaos for both the life on the planet and the humans exploring it. As the anger increases on the ship, the ground crew becomes more and more affected by the conflict and begins to rely on their instincts to keep the project moving forward. Unexpected danger plagues the mission as Lixia is determined to expand her knowledge.

Driven by her own curiosity, Lixia, an earthborn anthropologist, follows a female outcast called Nia across a strange and perilous world. Reprint.
