A Heritage of Stars by Clifford D. Simak
Thomas Cushing has lived within the confines of the University of Minnesota for the last five years. But this is not the University of Minnesota of the present day, this is the walled-in University of Minnesota some 1,500 years after the Collapse. The Collapse was a time when society as we know it crumbled due to their fear and consequent destruction of modern technology and all information that related to it.
Cushing, while at the University, finds the notes of a historian who lived some 500 years after the Collapse. These notes hint at what the author calls a Place of Going to the Stars. This place is somewhere far to the west and managed to survive the upheaval that occurred during the Collapse. Cushing takes it upon himself to find this place in a classic journey of discovery.
During Cushing's travels, he encounters several kindred spirits, and they wind up joining him on his journey as he seeks out the Place of Going to the Stars.
