Illustrated by Walotsky, Ron [cover]

Spine slightly slanted, corners a little bumped. A little foxing along top edge. Text is bright and clean. An attractive copy.

"Only a few nuclear weapons fell in America - the weapons that destroyed our nation were biological, and, ultimately, cultural. But in the chaos, the famine, the plague, there existed a few pockets of order. The strongest of them was the state of Deseret, formed from the vestiges of Utah, Colorado, and Idaho. The climate has changed. The Great Salt Lake has filled up to prehistoric levels. But there, on the fringes, brave, hardworking pioneers are making the desert bloom again. A civilization cannot be reclaimed by powerful organizations, or even by great men alone. It must be renewed by individual men and women, one by one, working together to make a community, a nation, a new America." One short story, "The Fringe," received both Nebula and Hugo nominations. "Salvage" appeared in the 1986 Nebula anthology.; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
