Description
Un padre y su hijo caminan solos por una America devastada. Nada se mueve en el paisaje quemado salvo cenizas en el viento. El cielo es oscuro, la nieve gris, y el frio es capaz de romper las rocas. Su destino es la costa, aunque no saben que, si algo, les espera alli. No tienen nada; solo una pistola para defenderse contra las bandas que acechan la carretera, las ropas que llevan puestas, un carrito con comida, y el uno al otro.La carretera es la historia profundamente conmovedora de un viaje. Un libro que atrevidamente imagina un futuro en el que no queda esperanza, pero en el que un padre y un hijo que solo se tienen a si mismos, sobreviven por amor.
