Daybreak 2250 A.D. by Andre Norton

"Daybreak 2250 A.D." is a great science fiction novel jam packed with 182 pages of Beast-Things, Lizard-men and mutants that roam the new world after total atomic devastation. Humans kill each other and there is bleak hope for survival as they pay for the sins of their ancestors. It is up to the estranged Fors, who is the son of the great Star Man, Langdon, to retain and find knowledge of the 'Old Ones'. This book deals with race and tolerance. Andre Norton makes this one of the biggest premises and makes it not too 'preachy'. This book is amazing and is a must read for anyone into survival science fiction.
