It is 2050. With global pollution and exploitation of the planet at intolerable levels, a summit of world leaders had forged the final solution to protect Earth – no human reproduction for 50 years. Halfway through humanity’s challenge to deny birth, one man, Jacob Harrower, discovers the awful truth about EarthWatch – and rebels against them. He and a small group of courageous men and women begin their own society, deep in the southern forests of Australia. But will they succeed against natural disasters, betrayal, and the might of EarthWatch?
Peter Stevens grew up in the lower south-east of South Australia, son of a forest supervisor. He obtained scholarships to attend Scotch College in Adelaide, before returning to work in sawmilling. He and his family later moved to Melbourne where he is involved in advocacy to government.
