From the Back Cover

The first book of the Earthseed series (the second being the Nebula Award winner Parable of the Talents).

Set in the early 21st century in a California where civilisation has all but broken down and poverty and uspeakable violence is the norm, this is a horrifying vision of what might be. Teenage Lauren Olamina is one of the few citizens fortunate enough to have a home ... However Lauren, knowing ... there must be a better way to live invents Earthseed, an entirely new religion that holds workable, positive solutions to society's ills. When the worst happens and her neighbourhood is invaded and destroyed, Lauren embarks on a perilous journey to find a place far away from the horrors of LA ...

'The missing link between Marge Piercy and Ursula Le Guin ... surreal, sensual science fiction.' Everywoman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
