What you need to know before your trail

Civilisation is collapsing. Frustrated and angry after years of denial and inaction, a ‘government of youth’ has taken power in North America, and deemed all those older than a prescribed age responsible for the current state of the world, and decreed they should be ‘relocated’, their property and assets confiscated.

David Ashworth, known by his friends and students as Teacher, and his wife May, find themselves among the thousands being moved to ‘new accommodation’ in the abandoned southern deserts – thrown together with a wealthy industrialist and his wife, a high court lawyer, two recent immigrants to America, and a hospital worker. Together, they must come to terms with their new lives in a land rendered unrecognisable.

As the terrible truth of their situation is revealed, lured by rumours of a tropical sanctuary where they can live in peace, they plan a perilous escape. But the world outside is more dangerous than they could ever have imagined. And for those who survive, nothing will ever be the same again…

Travel Guide


This book might be fantasy/dysptopian but it seems all too real. The youngsters have risen up against the adults who have destroyed the planet, have taken over the government in the USA and countries around the world are being taken over in the same way.

“In the beginning, God created man. And it was pretty much downhill from there.”

Remember Gilead? This is like that but all over the world. People trying to flee borders, escape, safe themselves. There has been and still is a major pandemic which is killing people left, right and centre. The natural order of everthing is not as it once was.
