About this title

Synopsis:

A powerful literary thriller about a frighteningly near future where myth and adventure intersect, Dry weaves its fable around the lethal conflict between two families. In this futuristic world, plant scientists Signy Nilsson and her brother Tomas search for a way to reclaim the land. Their virulent enemy, Magnus Dragland, one of the oldest and richest men on earth, tries to destroy them and steal their work. Signy and Tomas live at Sunterra, their great-grandmother's farm in the Old Swedish Colony, with Signy's twelve-year-old son, David, deaf from birth, who hears something no one else can: the voice of the land. Sunterra's untouched prairie is surrounded by Dragland's empire - almost a hundred square miles, all of it poisoned by his attempts to tame it. After a violent incident, Signy and David confront Dragland, and long-buried secrets are lifted out of the dust of the past and brought into light.

From the Publisher:

Dry presents a world of startling images. Prairies drier than the Dirty Thirties. Glaciers almost gone and great rivers reduced to creeks. Land emptied of settlement from the Canadian plains right down to Texas. Crippled cities clinging to life.
