Centuries after a global disaster and an ensuing pandemic, Earth’s population has been reduced to 2 percent of its former size. In New America, cities exist on the coasts, but Wrocks and Dackos, descendants of Native Americans, control the territory in between. Travel across their land is not undertaken by any but the most daring. Kayta disregards the risk, determined to start fresh in the new capital of Seattle. When the airship crashes and she is captured by fearsome Wrocks, she is thrown into a life of perplexing customs, jealousies, and deadly enemies,. With winter approaching, Kayta must make choices that will change her life forever, struggling to find a connection to a historic people who themselves are colliding with a steadily encroaching, vicious new world. A handsome and arrogant Wrock, Tarken Red Horse, propels Kayta into the grandeur and unforgiving harshness of the wilderness, into a lifestyle moored by the particulars of a hunter-gatherer existence, where they find sacrifice, humor, monumental grief, and the victories of hard-won love. "Exciting, thoughtful, and emotional—a successful blend of future history, adventure, and romance."--Kirkus Reviews
