This the third title in the Pelbar cycle continuing the growth of a nation out of the ashes of a devastating world war known as the time of fire. The Pelbar cities are struggling with the changing of the world and its affect on their way of living. Now they will face the toughest upheaval yet, the emergence of a people isolated within a radiation zone. A people carrying knowledge and technology reaching back to the time of fire. Reintegration is not easy. I have to say that I am hooked by this series and its exploration of change and acceptance in growing societies. There are some interesting insights the author mentions that align with the views I have adopted over the years pertaining to the future of the USA from back in 1981. ( )

The 3rd book in the Pelbar cycle. Just when things start to settle down, people and technology from the past start to interfere with the new order of things in Pelbar, and once again, Stel bears the brunt of it - as well as having to fix it, as usual. ( )

Es war dunkel, das Geräusch des Regens ließ nach, und hoch oben auf dem Gagen-Turm auf der Flußmauer der Stadt Pelbarigan am Heart wurden die zwei Gardisten beim ersten Lichtschimmer unruhig.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345300874, Mass Market Paperback)

More than one thousand years in the future, the conservative borders of Pelbar society continue to crumble as the people of Pelbar conduct trade, form friendships, and intermarry with members of the tribes now settled peacefully around the citadel of Northwall. Not all agree with the changes, however, and long instead for the old times of conflict and rigid order. Igniting the tension is the discovery of a mysterious subterranean shelter, where the descendants of survivors of the long-ago nuclear war live. A young woman from the shelter and the shocking revelations she brings precipitate a crisis that will profoundly affect the futures of plainsmen and citadelfolk alike.
 
The Dome in the Forest is the third volume and one of the most exciting tales in the Pelbar Cycle, a classic series of seven postapocalyptic novels about the people of Pelbar.
