Item description for When Eagles Are Silent by M.D. Berry Gerald J....
A generation on, and the post 9/11 world is still reeling from its aftermath. The USA has all but isolated itself from the rest of the humanity, and the remainder of the planet is in turmoil - the conflict over Kashmir has finally erupted, and the need for sustainable energy is more urgent and competitive than ever before.
Our protagonist, Jake, emerges from a solo trip in the Wyoming Tetons, into a country which has been abandoned by its people. The streets are filled only with silence, and heavy with portent. What could possibly have caused such a sudden mass exodus?
In fear for his family, and his life, Jake treks across North America towards his home in Virginia, looking for answers, clues, any sign of civilisation...
Gerald Berry's fascinating glimpse of the near future and its possibilities, keeps the reader gripped, whilst also, ultimately encouraging faith in humanity , in the face of an uncertain and frightening future.

Reviews - What do customers think about When Eagles Are Silent?
Cold Mountain for a future generation Mar 13, 2004
When Eagles Are Silent is a fast-moving tale of a man who returns from a camping vacation to find everyone -- gone. He must travel across the country, mostly on horseback, to reach his home and search for his family. The journey of one man in horrifying circumstances, and the colorful characters he meets along the way, remind me of Cold Mountain, but this time the setting is the future. Berry's vision of the world in about a generation's time is interesting and obviously informed by his career in the military. Mr. Berry offers a cautionary tale for us all.
Loved It!!! Nov 19, 2003
It does start a little slow, butstay with it! As the book picks up and your get the hang of what's going on ,its a wonderfully told futuristic tale of one man's journey across America in the wake of national disaster. As you read, the susupense builds to keep you going to find out what caused a nation to disappear. Very interesting insightful predictions for the future of our Post 9/11 Nation. After you've enjoyed the story - hold it as a backup handbook of how to survive in the event of a disaster!
