Fierce inter-generational conflict, plus sexism carried to its logical extreme, lead an escaped slave to the lands of the Riding Women -- nomadic amazon warriors of a barbarous future; but there is no easy peace. A world so drastically out of balance offers no simple answers. Rising tensions spark a daring invasion that releases not just revenge and retribution but new beginnings and startling discoveries. This is exciting science fiction rich in character, world building, and ideas: four novels, each standing as an adventure in itself, in three volumes.

Volume One, Walk to the End of the World, was a finalist for the John W. Campbell Award and was given a retrospective James Tiptree Jr. Literary Award. Another Tiptree was won by the concluding volume, The Conqueror's Child.
