Mother Earth, a short Robot-related story by Isaac Asimov, can be found on pages 59-92.

The text includes illustrations by Paul Orban on pages 59, 66, 75 and 85.

No individual robots appear, but positronic robots are part of the background. With fifty Spacer worlds led by Aurora, this tale bridges the gap between the early Robot stories and The Caves of Steel.
