What to expect

From the author of the award-winning Mars trilogy comes a vision of a radically different alternative future, where every day is a fight to survive.

North America, 2047. For the small Pacific Coast community of San Onofre, life in the aftermath of a devastating nuclear attack is a matter of survival, a day-to-day struggle to stay alive. But young Hank Fletcher dreams of the world that might have been, that might yet be—and dreams of playing a crucial role in America's rebirth.

Kim Stanley Robinson's first novel, The Wild Shore is an epic tale that will appeal to adults and young adults alike.
