A sci fi tale told from the viewpoint of aliens, managing to make the humans look and feel alien! ( )

A great book, told from a viewpoint of an alien finding a lone human and taking him aboard her ship. Tully, the human actually comes off as alien... Even though the Hani (The alien Species) is the alien. C.J. Cherryh is a skilled writer. She manages to make an alien species that is, well, alien, but understandable. I quite enjoyed this romp through space. ( )

First words
There had been something loose about the station dock all morning, skulking in amongst the gantries and the ines and the canisters which were waiting to be moved, lurking wherever shadows fell among the rampway accesses of the many ships at dock at Meetpoint.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0886772923, Mass Market Paperback)

No one at Meetpoint Station had ever seen a creature like the Outsider. Naked-hided, blunt toothed and blunt-fingered, Tully was the sole surviving member of his company -- a communicative, spacefaring species hitherto unknown -- and he was a prisoner of his discoverer/ captors the sadistic, treacherous kif, until his escape onto the hani ship The Pride of Chanur.

Little did he know when he threw himself upon the mercy of The Pride and her crew that he put the entire hani species in jeopardy and imperiled the peace of the Compact itself. For the information this fugitive held could be the ruin or glory of any of the species at Meetpoint Station.
