In an America devastated by war and plague, the only way to survive is to keep moving.
FORMAT: 8 CDs, Unabridged
In the aftermath of a war, America's landscape has been
ravaged and two-thirds of the population left dead from
a vicious strain of influenza. Fifteen-year-old Stephen
Quinn and his family were among the few that survived
and became salvagers, roaming the country in search of
material to trade for food and other items essential for
survival. But when Stephen's grandfather dies and his
father falls into a coma after an accident, Stephen finds
his way to Settler's Landing, a community that seems too
good to be true, where there are real houses, barbecues,
a school, and even baseball games. Then Stephen meets
strong, defiant, mischievous Jenny, who refuses to
accept things as they are.
