2047: and for sixty years America has been quarantined after a devastating nuclear attack.

Living simply on what the sea and land can provide, they strive to preserve what knowledge and skills they can in a society without mass communications.

And Henry and his friends are drawn into an adventure that will mark the end of their childhood…
"Simply one of our best writers"
"Robinson's writing ranks in the highest levels of the genre"

Kim Stanley Robinson was born in 1952. After travelling and working around the world, he settled in his beloved California. He is widely regarded as the finest science fiction writer working today, noted as much for the verisimilitude of his characters as the meticulously researched scientific basis of his work. He has won just about every major sf award there is to win and is the author of the massively successful and highly praised ‘Mars’ series.
