Hughes depicts a grim but ultimately hopeful future for decent people in the Canadian Rockies. Her story, set in the early 21st century, paints an arid world that has been all but destroyed by mankind's arrogance, ambition and blatant disregard for the balances of Nature:--Mother Earth, racial equilibrium and even the distortion of morality in general. Despite the young protagonists, this is not necessarily a Young Adult novel, for the author develops several mature themes; she urges educated conservation and bio-geo awareness; respect for ancient cultures; recognition of the predatory effects of "Civilization."
When will humanity accept responsibility for preserving the delicate balance among the Earth's ecosystems?
Orpahned Megan (13) and Ian (10) undertake a reluctant quest: to leave their deserted, decaying home after the sudden death of their mother in childbirth; to seek a uptopian society vaguely to the West--established by deliciously alluring Waterfalls. Turning their backs on a parched and eroded wilderness, the plucky youngsters struggle against Nature, human nature at its worst, and their own sibling rivalries. Megan is driven to save herself and protect her brother by locating a rumored uncle--if he is still alive.
The literary style includes much dialogue and some mini backtracking of time (replaying a scene from another character's point of view.) Can two kids make it through a hostile world to a land flowing with sweet water, where enlightened people work to revive the earth? Reminiscent of Terry Nations' futurist old series on PBS, SURVIVORS. We need to establish Connections with our planet. For thoughtful readers of all ages.

This was my favorite book from when I was young. I probably picked it because my name is Megan and I was 13 in 1995 (the year the book was published). This is a very deep book for kids that young I think, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't read books multiple times but I've read this one at least 5 times and plan to start reading it again now that I'm an adult.
