One of Heinlein's best-loved works, The Rolling Stones follows the rollicking adventures of the Stone family as they tour the solar system. It doesn't seem likely for twins to have the same middle name. Even so, it's clear that Castor and Pollux Stone both have "Trouble" written in that spot on their birth certificates. Of course, anyone who's met their grandmother Hazel would know they came by it honestly.

In a darkened corner of the world, America lies bleeding. The Big War has reduced the country's once-great industrial cities and vast countryside to a war-blackened landscape.

I used to have all of these books in paper back. Love them all. I had to give them to the friends of the library. Just could not move them. I will buy the whole set again from you. I will have them for the rest of my life. Thank you for old friends rejoined.

In the final book of John Christopher's classic series, Will Parker returns to the headquarters of the Resistance after several months in the City of Gold and Lead. He travels to Eastern Europe and the Middle East to set up resistance cells with young boys who question the power of the Tripods. When they are able to capture one of the Tripod 'Masters', they unlock a secret that they use in attempt to finally wrest control of the earth from the Tripods, and maybe - just maybe - save humanity.

In the first book of John Christopher's classic series, it is the year 2100, and the world is controlled by the machines called Tripods. Life goes on largely as it had in the pre-industrial era, as all of humanity is subject to mental controls which prevent anyone from challenging the established order.
