Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang - Kate Wilhelm

Hugo Award winner 1977, Nebula Award nominee 1976, John W. Campbell Memorial Award nominee 1977.

The Sumner family can read the signs: the droughts and floods, the blighted crops, the shortages, the rampant diseases and plagues, and, above all, the increasing sterility all point to one thing. Their isolated farm in the Appalachian Mountains gives them the ideal place to survive the coming breakdown, and their wealth and know-how gives them the means. Men and women must clone themselves for humanity to survive. But what then?
