The winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award from the PEN American Center and a MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Grant, the author of Kindred and Fledgling here takes us to a future California where rampant environmental and economic crises have led to social chaos. In a night of fire and bloodshed, Lauren Olamina, a minister's daughter, loses her family and plunges into the wild American landscape. But what begins as a flight for survival soon transforms into a pilgrimage, as Lauren conceives a startling vision of human destiny and the birth of a new faith.
