Some people – the tough ones – survive among the ruins and rubble of the cities. Michael is a scrounger. It is a harsh existence, but at least he is a free man. Outside the city, he would, as likely as not, be a slave. Bill Stoner isn’t tough at all. Without Michael’s protection, Bill couldn’t survive a week. But Bill Stoner is a man of vision and imagination; and with Michael at his side, he can lead America to civilization.
