Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, derailing the War between the States and changing the nation forever.

In this new America, however, the battle for survival is as political as it is personal--and the restless dead, it would seem, are the least of her problems.

At once provocative, terrifying, and darkly subversive, Dread Nation is Justina Ireland's stunning vision of an America both foreign and familiar--a country on the brink, at the explosive crossroads where race, humanity, and survival meet.

"The Walking Dead" meets "Formation" in Ireland's acclaimed meditation on race in America that takes the form of an alternate-history adventure in a post Reconstruction world where Confederate and Union soldiers rose from the dead at the end of the Civil War.

New York Times bestseller * Six starred reviews

"This absorbing page-turner works on multiple levels: as unflinching alternate history set in post-Reconstruction-era Maryland and Kansas; as a refreshingly subversive action story starring a badass heroine; as zombie fiction suspenseful; and as a compelling exhortation to scrutinize the racist underpinnings of contemporary American sociopolitical systems."--Horn Book (starred review)
