Afraid he might be dangerous, Ann hides in a cave and does not warn the man when he mistakenly bathes in a radioactive stream. When he falls ill, her fear of being alone forever leads her to reveal herself to help him. She discovers that the stranger is John Loomis, a chemist who helped design a prototype radiation-proof "safe-suit" at an underground lab near Ithaca, New York.

Ann moves him into her house and fantasizes about eventually marrying him. As Loomis becomes more ill and delirious, he has traumatic flashbacks to the underground lab, and talks of how he shot his coworker, Edward, who tried to take the safe-suit to find his family. As Loomis recovers, Ann is taken aback when he begins criticizing her farming and giving her orders. He forbids her to touch the safe-suit.

He orders her to plant wheat and beets to preserve seed stock, and though she acknowledges this is sensible, his explanation that they have to plan "as if this valley is the whole world and we are starting a colony," makes her uneasy. He demands to know why she asked and refuses to let go of her until she answers, pulling her off balance until she falls and inadvertently hits his face. He rebukes her for this and does not speak of the incident again.

One night soon afterwards, she awakes to hear Loomis in her room. When he attempts to rape her, she flees to the cave again. After some days, Ann approaches Loomis and proposes sharing the valley and farm work but living apart.

Ann remembers that he acted the same after he had grabbed her hand, "as if nothing had happened, or as if he had forgotten it," [6] She refuses to justify her choice to him, to tell him where she is living, or to come back to live with him.

Loomis answers that he has no choice but to accept her proposal, though he hopes she will reconsider and "act more like an adult and less like a schoolgirl". When she approaches the house, Loomis shoots her in the leg.

Ann flees back to the cave, realizing that he had not shot to kill, only to lame her to make her easy to capture.

Loomis uses her dog, Faro, to track her to the cave, where he burns her belongings, though Ann escapes. As she recovers, she has feverish dreams of another valley where children wait for her to teach them. Ann comes to believe the dreams may be true and Loomis is insane, so she plans to steal the safe-suit and find her dream valley.

Moreover, she decides to kill Faro to prevent Loomis from tracking her in the meantime, though she is later unable to do so. However, Faro is fatally poisoned swimming across the dead creek to her. Ann finally acts on her plan. She lures Loomis from the house with a note offering to talk if he meets her unarmed, then steals the safe-suit and waits for Loomis to arrive. Though he begs her not to leave him alone, Ann is resolved to leave, but tells him she will send people to him if she finds any.

Ann, heeding his advice, leaves the valley for the radiated zone, hoping to see a green horizon. She remembers thinking that if Adam was the first man on earth, Zachariah must be the last man.

The only other inhabitants were the Kleins, a couple who lived over the store and mainly did business with Amish farmers to the south. The valley is approximately 4 miles long, from Burden Hill in the north to an S-shaped pass in the south called "the gap".

The largest of its two streams, Burden Creek, is radioactive because its source is outside the valley. It runs parallel to the road from north to south and exits the valley through the gap.

A smaller stream originates from a deep spring on an eastern hillside and feeds a small lake with fish that provide a food source for Ann.

The stream then meanders south and joins Burden Creek. Much of the valley is made up of woodlands. Ann initially thinks the animals in the Valley are probably the last of their species; however, at the end of the book Loomis reveals he has seen birds flying in the distance west of the valley, which opens the possibility of other life as well.

There are rabbits and squirrels in the valley. There are also a few crows, which Ann believes survived because only they had the "sense" to stay in the valley, while other birds migrated. The most important feature of the valley is that it is somehow separated from the surrounding atmosphere and has its own weather system. However, for the purposes of this story, readers must suspend disbelief to accept that at least one valley with a self-contained weather system exists, allowing some life to continue after global nuclear war.

Major themes[ edit ] Seeing the story as a conflict between an innocent girl and a domineering male scientist bent on controlling the valley, reviewers have found themes such as the destructiveness of science at least when it is separated from conscience , the corrupting effect of the desire for power, and the moral value of individual freedom.
