The second in the World Made by Hand trilogy, Witch of Hebron carries forward the memorable characters and situation of book one. Set in a post-modern, post-industrial, post-technological world, Witch explores a very real potential scenario in a way that is elegant, human and thought provoking. This is a good story with fine writing - you do not need to be interested in the social commentary to enjoy it. The wonderful characters really drive the narrative and deepen the already robust world created in book one. Highly recommended! — Chris Morrow
“A delightful sequel to Kunstler's groundbreaking novel 'A World Made By Hand'. Kunstler envisions a world in the very near future after the world's oil supplies have run out, and the people that populate his world in New York's Hudson River Valley are so believable that the reader can really imagine what this world might (will?!) be like.”
— Mitch Gaslin, Food For Thought Books, Amherst, MA
Richly imagined . . . [The Witch of Hebron] reminded me of Larry McMurty’s Lonesome Dove, set in the dystopian world of The Road.”New York Journal of Books
"[A] suspenseful, darkly amusing story with touches of the fantastic in the mode of Washington Irving."Booklist
"Kunstler's post-apocalyptic world is neither a merciless nightmare nor a starry-eyed return to some pastoral faux utopia; it's a hard existence dotted with adventure, revenge, mysticism, and those same human emotions that existed before the power went out."Publishers Weekly
Vividly drawn . . . [The Witch of Hebron] plays to Kunstler’s strength, which is his understanding of municipal infrastructure, so he can analyze the importance of what has been taken from people, how they cope, and just what is necessary for them to survive.”Steve Goddard’s History Wire (online)
