Publisher's Summary

The midwestern town of Middletown is the "first strike" of a new super bomb. However, instead of destroying the town, the attack rips a hole in the space-time continuum, sending the town and it's inhabitants to a distant Earth, cold and foreboding. The story of their struggle, survival and ultimate success in rekindling the planet and dealing with the people and aliens of the future, is the stuff of great science fiction. As you listen, see if you agree with the many who think this story was the origin of the Star Wars characters Chewbacca and Leia.

Classic juvenile sci-fi

Good municipal survival story. Picture the love child of Alas Babylon, the Jericho TV show and the Tom Hanks movie Cast's that for mixing my entertainment metaphors?

Bad science but

As a kid I loved this book. But to imagine the Earth at the end of its life, oceans dry and the sun a Red Giant (but not frying the planet) in only 1,000,000 years is so far off that it really takes away from the story.
