A History of the Future

A World Made by Hand Novel

The World Made by Hand Novels: Book #3

Description

A History of theFuture is the third thrilling novel in Kunstler’s World Made by Handseries, an exploration of family and morality as played out in the small townof Union Grove.

Following the catastrophes of the twenty-first century—thepandemics, the environmental disaster, the end of oil, the ensuing chaos—peopleare doing whatever they can to get by and pursuing a simpler and sometimeshappier existence. In little Union Grove in upstate New York, the townspeopleare preparing for Christmas. Without the consumerist shopping frenzy thatdogged the holidays of the previous age, the season has become a time to focuson family and loved ones. It is a stormy Christmas Eve when Robert Earle’s sonDaniel arrives back from his two years of sojourning throughout what is left ofthe United States. He collapses from exhaustion and illness, but as he recovers, he tells the story of the break-up of the nation into three uneasy independentregions and his journey into the dark heart of the new Foxfire Republiccentered in Tennessee and led by the female evangelical despot Loving Morrow.In the background, Union Grove has been shocked by the Christmas Eve doublemurder by a young mother of her husband and infantson. Town magistrate Stephen Bullock is in a hanging mood.

A History of theFuture is attention-grabbing and provocative but also lyrical, tender, andcomic—a vision of a future of America that is becoming more and more convincing, and perhaps even desirable, with each passing day.
