Welcome to the Lucky Country

The group trekked for several weeks over rough terrain to reach the border town. On the way, they pooled their meagre resources and precious reserves of e-credits and cash to buy food and water. And begged when these ran low.

Welcome to the Lucky Country is a short story from the Tall And True writers' website, written and narrated by Robert Fairhead.
