In 2078, sixty years after a destruction nearly ended life on earth, a small group yet survived in a protected valley in North Georgia. Only Lon, a renegade, had ventured outside the valley. Then an injured stranger arrived and before she died, told of her settlement 400 miles west. Lon and two others were sent to find her home. This is an account of their epic journey, and dangers they endured.
