Will Bonsall's Through the Eyes of a Stranger, the first book in the Yaro Tales series, is a thrilling adventure story set in a future land called Esperia. Bonsall's pension for story telling shows in the lively and memorable characters, as well as the detailed world he builds. Esperia is neither here nor now, but a fictional place that offers a view into what a sustainable society might look like. It is a model system in which many of the ideas for the Scatterseed Project have been tested.
