K-154 STEWART Earth Abides VG
By George R. Stewart
Stewart was a writer of histories and historical novels. This is his one-and-only try at science fiction. He selects the "America Destroyed" theme, and handles it very very well.
Young Isherwood Williams was alone in the mountains when the calamity struck. He returned to find civilization destroyed, America virtually depopulated. Cities, highways and homes were deserted.
Gathering together with such survivors as can be found, he begins to direct the herculean task of rebuilding the Land of the Free!
Originally written in 1949. I believe this Ace Star edition is the first paperback appearance, but I won't swear to it. Solid copy with some dirt and edge wear. Pages are browned, binding tight and square.
