  • ""Following years of catastrophic hurricanes, the Gulf Coast--stretching from the Florida panhandle to the western Louisiana border--has been brought to its knees. The region is so punished and depleted that the government has drawn a new boundary ninety miles north of the coastline. Life below the Line offers no services, no electricity, and no resources, and those who stay behind live by their own rules. Cohen is one who stayed"--Dust jacket flap."
  • "In a hurricane-ravaged Mississippi of the near future, a man who elects to remain behind when most people have fled the area is brutally attacked by two hitchhikers who steal his supplies, a crime that prompts him to pursue justice."

  • "Following years of catastrophic hurricanes, the Gulf Coast has been brought to its knees. The government has drawn a new boundary line ninety miles north of the coastline. Life below the Line offers no services, no electricity, and no resources, and those who stay behind live by their own rules. Cohen is one who stayed. Unable to overcome the crushing loss of his wife and unborn child who were killed during an evacuation, he returned home to Mississippi to bury them on family land. After his home is ransacked, Cohen is finally forced from his shelter. On the road north, he encounters a colony of survivors led by a fanatical, snake-handling preacher named Aggie who has dangerous visions of repopulating the barren region. Cohen is faced with a decision: continue to the Line alone, or try to shepherd the captives across the unforgiving land with the biggest hurricane yet bearing down -- and Cohen harboring a secret that may pose the greatest threat of all. Rivers is a masterful tale of survival and redemption in a world where the next devastating storm is never far behind."
  • ""Due to years of catastrophic hurricanes, the Gulf Coast has been sealed off by a government-drawn boundary called Line. Those who remain below the Line, like Cohen, live hand-to-mouth in this lawless, unforgiving land. When a violent attack finally forces him come out of seclusion, Cohen heads north, and along the way encounters Aggie, a fanatical, snake-handling preacher who helms a colony of captive women and children and has dangerous visions of repopulating the barren region. Now Cohen is faced with a decision: continue to the Line along, or try to shepherd Aggie's prisoners to freedom with the biggest hurricane yet bearing down-and Cohen harboring a secret that may pose the greatest threat of all."-- Page [4] of cover."
