The World Made by Hand postapocalyptic saga concludes with this "suspenseful tale spiked with suffering and violence, rough justice and love" (Booklist). The small town of Union Grove has adapted, struggled, and thrived in the new age of civilization. But early spring is full of hardships: Fresh food is scarce and the winter stores are almost gone. Despite the time of privation, young explorer Daniel Earle resurrects the town newspaper, and the town trustees ask him to help revive the Hudson River trade route. But even as the townsfolk strive forward, a group of visitors remind them that nothing is easy in the new world. They proclaim themselves as representatives of the Berkshire People's Republic, spouting high-minded, near-fanatical rhetoric of social justice and absolute equality-all while demanding tribute from the citizens under slyly veiled threats. Now, the townspeople of Union Grove will have to decide just how far they are willing to go to keep the freedom and peace for which they have fought so hard . . . With this glimpse into a future that could become reality all too soon, James Howard Kunstler delivers "a slyly folksy, caustically hilarious, unabashedly proselytizing, and affecting finale in a keenly provocative saga." (Booklist).
