Thousands of years in the future, Earth is a desolate ruin. The first human ship to return in millennia discovers an abandoned wasteland inhabited by only a few degenerate or mutated human outcasts.

"The ballad of the captain" sounds very much like the old Dubliners song, "Seven Drunken Nights." Loved this story after getting used to the narrator. Looking forward to the next book.
