Publisher's Summary

The second American Revolution has propelled the Southern-controlled United Republic of America into power, its oppressive laws enforced by the National Reform Program's re-education camps. The citizens are suffering from a militaristic tyranny and federal extortion at the expense of an ambitious space program designed to propagate the galaxy with model citizens of the Republic. But a silent underground faction plans to commandeer a ship and make a great escape to the stars.
BONUS AUDIO: Author Allen Steele explains how he drew from U.S. history to write this Hugo-nominated novella.

Great read but is simply an extract from Coyote

This book is just an extract of the first few chapters of Coyote. If you buy that book you have this content so it is really not woth it. If you are going to listen to this, then you should listen to all of Coyote -- one of the best novels in sci fi in many years.

Just an Extract

I thought that it would be an expansion of the book, "Coyote". Instead, it's an extract of the first few chapters. We meet the characters that will comprise the book and this novella was entertaining. It does not go into the details that are revealed later in the book and the trilogy. It's exciting but don't bother if you've already read the book "Coyote"...like me. I feel marketed!

Good but think before buying.

This is an excellent stand alone book but is actually included in the book called Coyote. It is the first few chapters of that book as I found out when I bought it after listening to this. Save yourself a few quid or a credit by buying that book only.
