  • "Out on the far northern border of a failed state, Makepeace patrols the ruins of a dying city and tries to keep its unruly inhabitants in check. Into this cold, isolated world comes evidence that life is flourishing elsewhere and Makepeace is inspired to take the road to reconnect with human society. What Makepeace finds is a world unravelling, stockaded villages enforcing a rough and uncertain justice, mysterious slave camps labouring to harness the little-understood technologies of a vanished civilisation. But Makepeace's journey also leads to unexpected human contact, tenderness, and the dark secrets behind this frozen world."
  • "Out on the frontier of a failed state, a plane crashes at the edge of an abandoned city. Sheriff Makepeace, the city's last citizen, resolves to go in search of the plane's origins and what is left of a world ravaged by climate change and war. In this startling, post-apocalyptic landscape, Makepeace encounters violent stockaded villages, irradiated cities, and work camps laboring to harness the technologies of a vanished civilization. Far North is "an absorbing end-of-days fable" (GQ), and an adventure through an unforgettable land, in the company of a remarkable hero for our times--Cover, [p.4]."@en
