Ravage by René Barjavel

Set in a dystopian future where technological civilization has collapsed following a catastrophic event, the narrative follows a group of survivors as they navigate a world plunged into chaos. With all modern conveniences and social structures gone, the protagonist, a young man, leads a band of people from the ruins of Paris to his ancestral home in Provence, hoping to rebuild a simpler, agrarian-based society. Along the way, they face numerous challenges, including the regression of humanity to barbarism and the struggle to maintain their own humanity in the face of desperation. The story is a cautionary tale about the fragility of civilization and the enduring power of nature and human resilience.
