This is not complete, it just lists the chapters the player gets. The whole book is found at Nesingwary Expedition in Nagrand. Will start updating later today. --Tinkerer 09:27, 23 October 2006 (EDT)

Done. But needs boilerplating. --Adys 04:04, 27 November 2006 (EST)

Maybe coming from

The title of this quest might come from a short story by Robert A. Heinlein, who is a Science-Fiction writer. The title of this short story is "The Green hills of Earth"[1].

I wasn't sure that it might be so but since BC and since they put the Toshley stuff in the Blade Edge plateau which also come directly from the book of Heinlein Starship Troopers (and the Verhoeven's movie), I thought I could share this idea with the wowwiki users since those Blizzard's guys seem to love this excellent writer !

Toshley is from Star Wars actually. Tosche Station, there is so many star wars jokes surrounding that place, starting with the droid you find before you reach the top of that area.Baggins 09:39, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes, Toshley might be from Star Wars but the scene that involve Toshley's Station and some of the characters (Razak Ironsides and Dizzy Dina) inside are obviously references to Starship Troopers (mostly the movie) which is why I thought that the people working for Blizzard were inspired by this other story of Heinlein for this quest.

Read Hemet Nesingwary's page for a more obvious origen.--SWM2448 19:40, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
