"Men go and come, but the Earth abides."

I couldn't help but conjure images of the Norse God, Thor, as Ish carried his hammer throughout the story and slowly came to be idolized by the following generations who followed. I can see how this apocalyptic tale inspired Stephen King to write 'The Stand'.

This book is a dated piece of fiction, but whether taking place in 1949 or in present day, one thing holds true, regardless of mans evolution and technology it could all come crashing down; our museums, Golden Gates, and colorful splashes of red. And yet our Mother Earth would spin on.
