I received this book for free from Concord Free Press, with the agreement that I would give an amount of money of my choice to a person or charity who deserved it, in honor of the book. I gave $25 to Kiva.org, giving someone a chance to start a small business.

The book was intriguing - I could give it 1,2,3,4, or 5 stars, depending on the concepts that the book presented, so I'm sticking with three. This is another one that could have gone 3.5

The story is about Gower, CO around 2050, in a war-torn, overpowering government. Gower is "off the grid", meaning that they have no electricity, and because of that no tourism, business, etc. Basically, people are living back in the middle ages in a town that snowed out from the rest of the world 7-8 months a year. There are a variety of interesting characters, and certainly gives you a look into a possible future. The story was not terribly powerful, but definitely thought-provoking.

I will absolutely support Concord Free Press again in the future.
