This Review Needs a Title...

In post apocalyptic America, a group walks from North Carolina to Utah dodging threats. This short book describes the interrelation of a band of mormons with a roaming loaner and the melding of their goals. It's not long enough to develop the characters and their relationships nor is it long enough to become boring as the scenes repeat as they wander the Appalachians, plains and Rockies.
