The Wastelands are a disgusting and poisoned land beyond the old city of Lud. The track of Blaine the Mono cuts through this accursed land. Within the Wastelands lie CandletonRileaThe Falls of the HoundsDasherville, and, at the end of the area, the Thinny leading into Topeka.

In The Waste Lands, the ka-tet travels through the wastelands aboard Blaine after leaving Lud. From the mono, they look down upon the ruined country far below them. There they see the true horrors of the wastelands; great mutated bird-like creatures with leathery wings, mutant creatures on stalks, and many other monstrous creatures. They are all the result of the experiments and weapons that the Old Ones used on All-World. Previously the ka-tet believed the devastation they'd heard about was mostly the result of conventional nuclear weapons but looking down on the terrors below them they reconsider. Blaine confirms that the weapons used in the war were "much worse" than that.
