Riassunto: The long-awaited conclusion of the Holy Ground trilogy!
Occupation of Earth is now in its 27th year, and relations between humanity and the dictatorial Hefn have never seemed shakier. The aliens mission is to save the planet from its human abusers; and the Baby Ban imposed by mass hypnosis has made Earth a cleaner, wilder, less crowded place. But the Ban has now lasted so long, and provoked such hatred, that when a spark is struck the situation explodes into worldwide riots on one side and retaliatory mindwipings on the other. Years of effort by the eco-spiritual Gaians, who mediate between humans and Hefn, have been destroyed.
While the Gaians regroup and brainstorm frantically in an atmosphere of doubt and danger, one obsessed Hefn and one young woman begin a radical experiment. Pam Pruitt has discovered a growing ability to acquire information by non-rational means. Childhood suffering has empowered her, in a way once understood by hunting and gathering peoples -- an understanding lost with that lost lifeway -- to communicate with mysterious forces through strong dreaming: to function as a shaman on behalf of her community, the human race.
L'autore: Multiple-award-winning author Judith Moffett taught creative writing at the Iowa Writers Workshop, the University of Kentucky, and for many years at the University of Pennsylvania. Her previous books include science fiction, poetry, literary criticism, creative nonfiction, and Swedish poetry in her translation. She was born in 1942 in Louisville. Moffett is the author of ten previous books in five genres, four of them works of science fiction. Her first published story, Surviving, won the first Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for best science fiction story of 1986, and she received the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 1988. Three of her stories have appeared on the final ballot for the Nebula and one of these, Tiny Tango, was also on the Hugo ballot. The first two volumes of her Holy Ground trilogy, of which this novel is the third, were New York Times Notable Books for their years of publication; the second, Time, Like an Ever-Rolling Stream, was shortlisted for the James Tiptree, Jr. Award. Widowed in 1998, Moffett lives with her standard poodles, Fleece and Feste, in Lawrenceburgy KY. and Swarthmore PA.
