The Pioneer Novel of a New America. Somewhere near the Great Lakes, 1000 years from now. 500 miles below our planet’s surface tribes of near human albino warriors eke out an existence in a hostile environment. They tell stories of a golden age, of sunlight, of art and culture; but such tales are mere myths – until a man and a woman with god-like abilities arrive and promise to lead them towards the surface, towards the light and to a new life of plenty.
