Publisher Comments:

Long ago, the Tripods--huge, three-legged machines--descended upon Earth and took control. Now people unquestioningly accept the Tripods' power. They have no control over their thoughts or their lives. But for a brief time in each person's life--in childhood--he is not a slave. For Will, his time of freedom is about to end--unless he can escape to the White Mountains, where the possibility of freedom still exists. The Tripods trilogy follows the adventures of Will and his cohorts, as they try to evade the Tripods and maintian their freedom and ultimately do battle against them. The prequel, When the Tripods Came, explains how the Tripods first invaded and gained control of the planet.

Synopsis:

John Christopher's acclaimed Tripods trilogy has been a favorite of science fiction and fantasy readers for decades. Now, to commemorate the thirty-fifth anniversary of the first publication of The White Mountains, the author has revised all three stories for the twenty-first century — and stunning new covers are sure to draw a new generation of readers into the page-turning adventure.

The prequel to the Tripods trilogy, When the Tripods Came, is also available with a new cover and a special introduction by the author. And there's a handsome new boxed set of all four books as Well.

Synopsis:

New Edition with a Preface by the Author!

When it comes to alien invasions, bad things come in threes.

Three landings: one in England one in Russia, and one in the United States.

Three long legs, crushing everything in their paths, with three metallic arms, snaking out to embrace — and then discard — their helpless victims.

Three evil beings, called Tripods, which will change life on this planet forever.
