The O-Zone territory in the Ozarks has been off limits for fifteen years, due to leakage of nuclear waste stored in caves. Eight privileged New Yorkers head for the forbidden area in their private jet-powered helicopters on a New Year's Eve lark. Their encounters with O-Zone's inhabitants, outcast human beings called "aliens," change the lives of the urbanites and the outcasts alike.
This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather with raised bands and features gilded sewn-in pages with a satin marker. Simply superb quality; Franklin Library at its best.
