"A father and his young son walk alone through a burned America. heading slowly for the coast. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. They have nothing but a pistol to defend themselves against the men who stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavanged food- and each other"
It took me a little while to get into this book as the wording is a little awkard. However, by a few pages in I had forgotten this thanks to the gripping images and emotions which the author clearly portrays in his writing. You will want to read right to the end, just to find out what happens to them.
