Synopsis

Eli walks alone in a post-apocalyptic America. He heads west along the Highway of Death on a mission he doesn't fully understand, but knows he must complete. In his backpack is the last copy of a book that could become the wellspring of a revived society. Or, in the wrong hands, the hammer of a despot. Eli keeps his blade sharp and his survival instincts sharper as his quest thrusts him into a savage wasteland…and into explosive conflict with a resourceful warlord set on possessing the book. ''We walk by faith, not but sight,'' quotes Eli. Those words hit home with unexpected meaning and power.
