Domers — a novel of high adventure that presents a future where Native Americans again live free in their traditional lands and it is the relative newcomers to America who have moved onto reservations to protect themselves from a dangerous world.
In a world where liberty is lost, and where the sight of earth and sky is forbidden, one man fights to rediscover freedom...and himself.
2080 A.D., the United States is a "virtual" country whose citizens have lived for sixty years under millions of family-sized domes, hermetically sealed with no windows and no access to The Outside where the rest of the world faces virus pandemics, riots inspired by worldwide economic chaos, and terrorists killing millions with nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons.
Tom Corant is a US Army sergeant who fights battles all over the world by remotely controlling armed infantry robots from the safety of his bedroom. Tom is happy with life in the dome he was born into twenty-four years ago. Tom met, courted, and proposed marriage to Jenny Salem all on-line via the SuperNet, the high-bandwidth communications web that connects the 75 million dome homes that make up the United States of America.
While the betrothed couple is being transported to their own dome to start their life together, they are kidnapped by a Mexican army patrol roaming the dangerous Outside. Tom and Jenny are rescued by Roving Wolf, a Comanche scout whose people (like all other Native American Indian nations) were exempted from mandatory doming and who now live free in their native lands among millions of buffalo in the reconstituted bison herds of the Great Plains.
Roving Wolf is ordered to escort the couple across the desert Southwest where a multi-tribe Native American army is collaborating with the dome society’s military to repel an imminent invasion by the ambitious military dictator of Mexico. During their journey, Tom and Jenny are exposed for the first time to Nature and to Freedom. Tom comes to realize that the domes are prisons and he learns the truth behind the doming of America. Tom vows to free his family, fight against the system, to expose the government’s lies, and to someday make the Domers understand that the safety offered by dome life is not worth the price.

Really enjoyed this book....stayed up late reading which I don't do often.. This book is worth your time and money
I agree with the first review. Domers is a phenomenal novel and everyone should have a copy! This would make a great movie too! Freedom is very important,if you lose it you are good as dead.
I thought the ending was a bit of a cliffhanger, but otherwise the book is great.
I just read the synopsis of this very interesting book. Mr. Couzins is incredibly creative and entertaining. His unique imagination has dreamt up a best-seller!
