Tripods #03: The City of Gold and Leadby John Christopher
Synopses & Reviews
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.
To commemorate the 35th anniversary of the first publication of "The White Mountains, " the first novel of this acclaimed science fiction series, the author has revised all three stories--and the prequel, "When the Tripods Came"--for the 21st century.
