Summary
A father and son are walking alone through burned America. They have nothing, just a pisto to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food--and each other
Summary
Apocalypse grips the earth; wildlife has disappeared; and starvation prevails. Amidst this bleak backdrop, a man and his young son slowly make their way toward the coast. Avoiding roves of marauding cannibals and fighting off starvation, they gain hope and stamina in knowing they are some of the remaining few virtuous people
