Millions of years from now, a small tribe battles to stay alive in Earth's dense jungle. Sci-fi fantasy read by Gareth Thomas.

Millions of years in the future, a colossal banyan tree covers much of the Earth. In its boughs, the last remnants of humanity are fighting for survival, terrorised by carnivorous plants and grotesque insect life.
