Summary :

The devastating Food and Fuel Wars have turned once-powerful nations into isolated farming communities. Barter has replaced currency, and scientists--considered responsible for the world's misery--are burned at the stake.

Hidden in the Idaho hills, astronomer Allen Chandliss secretly monitors his radiotelescope, listening for signs of intelligent life, hoping that the aliens will come and improve things on Earth. For seventeen years he has waited patiently. His patience is about to pay off.
