And a new earth. A romance.
First edition. A post-apocalyptic fantasy novel relating the history of a utopian island that survived a ‘second flood’ in 1958, which destroyed the world’s civilization and reduced the human population to just 10,000. The island was re-discovered by the New World Fleet in 2832, 872 years after the near-extinction of the human race, and was found to have survived the catastrophe relatively untouched. Following an introduction by the commander of the New World Fleet that re-discovered the island, the novel follows the story of George Smith and his foundation and leadership of the utopia later dubbed ‘Easter Island’.
Negley, 614; Sargent, p. 92.
