Among the top apocalyptic books ever published. If you're a fan of the genre, this is a must read.

A lone man is wandering the country after war and disease have wrecked the world. He is looking for a pocked of civilization, someone who is taking responsibility. Am I the last of the Idealists? He asks. Finally he decides to start making the change he has been searching for; building the idea he had hoped to find. This was a compelling story of a man looking for something to believe in in the barbaric times of survival. I loved Gordon as a hero; a man who would follow any good leader but who ends up a leader himself. I have enjoyed all of David Brin’s other books and now add this one to the list.

Very different from the 1997 movie adaptation with Kevin Costner. The movie is lightly based on the book.
