What if America went away?

by IowaGirl on Sep 27, 2007

If there are days when you think the world might be better off if America went away and we could start over fresh--this book is a cautionary tale. Although there are vague references to a plague-type disease and radioactive/chemical deathly clouds responsible for the demise of life as we know it, this story is far in the future where society has deteriorated to a hunter-gatherer/agrarian day-to-day existence without rules, government, courts, or technology; stability is a thing of the past and vulnerability is a constant. The story follows the lives of two main characters who struggle to survive lawlessness, chaos, and anarchy and retain their hope for the future as well as their humanity. This is a good book.
