Apocalypse. A movie was made of this book starring Kevin Costner as Gordon Krantz. After a Doomwar, there are pockets of civilization, but no national authority. Krantz is fleeing from raiders and hides in an old abandoned postal truck. He dons the clothes of the dead postal worker and makes his way to an outpost in the great Northwest. Because the citizens think he's a mailman, they feel hope. Besides hope, there are also bad guys. Krantz (Costner) ultimately faces them down to keep hope alive.
