Preview of Children of the Dust Summary:

Most readers will be drawn to Children of the Dust because of its vivid and imaginative picture of a new world being built on the ashes of our own.

The new society and new people, homo superior, portrayed in the second and third parts of the book are a surprise.

First, horror and doom fall over the world when nuclear bombs explode, and it appears there is no hope for humanity. The book has been criticized for assuming that a nuclear war is survivable, but reading of the struggle to rebuild will help readers to form their own judgments on this question.

Children of the Dust was named one of the Best Books for Young Adults in 1985 by the American Library Association.
