Isso me lembra muito o Oeste de janeiro . Lentamente girando planeta, manchado com culturas diferentes, nômades de pastagens de quem nosso herói emerge. Culturas próximas aos pólos estão mais avançadas.

This is the beginning of Knobil's life story -- not so much a heroic quest as a series of fateful accidents that thrust him from place to place and tribe to tribe across the planet Vernier. This story has all the elements of historical fantasy, and yet the setting is a science fictional world, settled two thousand years ago by human colonists whose technology has been lost. Vernier's rotation is so slow that daytime inches around the planet, taking centuries to complete one revolution. And as the sun moves across the land, the entire ecosystem must travel with it.
Vernier is divided into twelve longitudes named January to December. Knobil was born in the west of January, and by the time he is a very old man, the grasslands have entered June.
