A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

When the bombs fell and Western civilization ended, the residents of Hickory Hollow, Texas, scarcely noticed the difference. They were already used to fending for themselves--growing their own food, helping their neighbors survive, keeping their rural life going, much as before.

But when the Ungers--a band of renegade thieves, murderers, and ne'er-do-wells--began raiding the nearby plots, looting and killing everyone in sight, it was time to take action!

"I was reminded constantly of George R. Stewart's classic post-holocaust novel, Earth Abides. The gentle rhythms of country existence, the sense that the world will continue (with or without us), the joy of living close to the earth, the nature of community itself, all combine for a poignant tale celebrating the best of what it means to be human. In Mayhar's perceptive eyes, the World Begins in Hickory Hollow." --Robert Reginald.

From the Back Cover:

It was a day just like any other for the Hardemans. It was filled with work-hard work-but the kind of work that let them enjoy their accomplishments, small and large, and which rewarded them with a hand-made future. It was the kind of work honest, farm-people do. But it wasn't always like this.

Zack and Lucinda left their high-paying jobs in Houston, left behind careers for a different kind of life. For too many years, they had battled to make their way in the foaming insanity that was the modern world. They had grown up as neighbors on two small, hard-run farms at the back of beyond in East Texas. The couple returned to an abandoned family farm to carve out a simpler life, one which didn't include architecture or running a fair-sized photo lab, but which did include their children, each other, and a contact with nature and the land which was important to who they were.

A little out of touch? Sure they were. They didn't even realize it when the bombs dropped. . . .
