1961: First book of The People by Zenna Henderson
Pilgrimage is best read with a different set of expectations than most SF and a willingness to read past a lack of realistic grounding for the sense of wonder and delight in love, friendship, and community that are the true core of the story. It is, to some extent, a wish-fulfillment fantasy: loneliness, isolation, and a sense of being different than all the people around may be cured by discovering one day that one is a part of a wonderful community of fellow aliens who can teach special powers. But Henderson is good enough at writing emotions that she mostly pulls it off.
