"This fable lifts a great freight of ideas effortlesslyÃ¢ÂÂ¦The story of an expedition driven on by wishes of possession and power but guided internally by myths of America whose sources lie in the late 20th century." Ã¢ÂÂGuardianFollowing the energy crisis of the late twentieth century, America has been abandoned. Now, a century later, a small group of European explorers returns to the now climatically mutated continent. But America is unrecognizableÃ¢ÂÂthe Bering Strait has been dammed and much of the country has become a desert, populated by isolated natives and the bizarre remnants of a disintegrated culture. The expedition sets off from Manhattan on a cross-country journey, through Holiday Inns and abandoned theme parks, to uncover a shocking new power in the heart of Las Vegas.
