Summary
Jake Sully is a former Marine confined to a wheelchair, but despite his broken body, he is still a warrior at heart. Recruited to travel light years to the human outpost on Pandora, where a corporate consortium is mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth's energy crisis, he is given a mission to infiltrate the Na'vi, who have become a major obstacle to mining the precious ore. But everything changes when a beautiful Na'vi female, Neytiri, saves his life
