Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Value of Knowledge Explained This book is set in 2072, sixty years after the scarlet plague has ravaged the world's population. The remnant survivors struggle to live and increase their numbers. James Howard Smith is the last plague survivor. Through the course of this story he tries to impress upon his grandchildren and other listeners, that it is important that they learn about and remember the past. That they need to know more about their world than the basic skills of survival. I really enjoyed this story, though at the beginning I found it a bit difficult to figure out what was going on. Will definitely be looking for a paper copy of this one.
