Publisher's Summary

After more than a century of exploring the stars, Keith Stoner returns to Earth to find that the world he has come back to does not match the one he left. The planet is suffering the consequences of disastrous greenhouse flooding. Most nations have been taken over by ultraconservative religion-based governments, such as the New Morality in the United States. With population ballooning and resources running out, Earth is heading for nuclear war. Stoner, the star voyager, wants to save Earth's people. But first he must save himself from the frightened and ambitious zealots who want to destroy this stranger - and the terrifying message he brings from the stars.

Great story

Loved the book. So much of what he wrote about is right on target here, where I live. Religion rules the lives of many of these people here, most of which are very uneducated, poor, and having as many as 16 children. The story line keeped me interested through out. Wish I had started with the first in the series.
