8 out of 10

"Nothing links person to person like the frequent passage from hand to hand of a good book."

This is an excellent story, one of McDevitt's best, which is saying a lot. The story takes place in a far-future America, long after some disaster that destroyed most of the technology and left the world in a must less sophisticated state. In fact, the people of Earth's past are called "The Roadmakers" because of the highway systems that still exist. These are magnificent ruins that crisscross the continent. Other artifacts of the former civilizations like jewelry and combs are considered precious. Books are very rare.

This story is about a journey taken by a small band of people in which they encounter all sorts of obstacles and mysteries and learn much about their mysterious past.

Highly recommended!

Excellent story. This is the flip side of The World Without Us. What does the world look like after a new collapse of the human population? What would the succeeding generations make of the mess? How would they experience it?

Ultimately this is a book about meaning and the quest for meaning in our lives. I found it very touching (as an reader) what the end source of the Quest turned out to be.
