Looking for a short story about a young woman living in a post-Yellowstone caldera eruption environment. She lives with an abusive boyfriend who tolchoks people with a piece of concrete wielded in a sock.

She breaks free from the abusive relationship and is gifted a number of viable seeds by an old man.

  • I thought that nobody would survive a Yellowstone caldera eruption. – Spkit 2000 Mar 26 at 12:07
  • Probably nobody in western USA, southwestern Canada and northern Mexico would survive. The rest of the world would suffer heavily from environmental damage (volcanic winter!), so maybe civilization would not survive either - depending on how ferociously people and/or nations fight over the limited resources, food in particular. – Volker Landgraf Mar 28 at 16:15
