Summary (From the publisher):

A century after America's financial collapse and the climatic upheavals of the 1990s, Wayne stows away on SS Apollo, bound for the New World on a voyage of rediscovery. He and the crew encounter hazards at every turn and ghosts from the past as they travel West. In Las Vegas, roaming bands of Mexican teenagers welcome them to the citadel of late 20th century glitter. Their charismatic leader—a William Burroughs look-alike addressed reverently as President Charles Manson—invites Wayne into his cybernetic stronghold. But suddenly the erratic president takes fright at Wayne's alien presence and threatens to play deadly war games with an arsenal of leftover Titan warheads. Now it's not just the Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe holograms that are at risk...
