From the Publisher:
A riveting, powerful debut novel from an award-winning adventure writer: the story of a pilot surviving in a world filled with loss?and of what he is willing to risk to rediscover, against all odds, connection, love, and grace.
Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. His wife is gone, his friends are dead, he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission somehow beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life?something like his old life?exists beyond the airport. Risking everything, he flies past his point of no return?not enough fuel to get him home?following the trail of the static-broken voice on the radio. But what he encounters and what he must face?in the people he meets, and in himself?is both better and worse than anything he could have hoped for.
Annotation:
Since a planet-wide flu epidemic decimated civilization--and took his wife's life--Hig has made his home at a small airfield in Colorado. Before the end-of-the-world, Hig flew small planes, and now he scrapes by with the companionship of his dog and a few other scrappy survivors. The external dangers of lawlessness and the wilderness constantly threaten the existence of his characters, but Peter Heller also explores Hig's internal, emotional world, creating a novel with dramatic action and a powerful sense of hope.

Praise

"From start to finish, Heller carries the reader aloft on graceful prose, intense action, and deeply felt emotion." (starred review) 06/11/2012
