This novel delves back into the world of wilderness survival while continuing to examine the tough choices we as individuals would face after a catastrophe as well as the tough choices our government would be faced with. Sara maintains her focus on the concept of exploring the vast issues and circumstances from the perspective of one individual caught in the middle. As well as presenting some great survival techniques, outdoor activities, and possible natural disaster scenarios along the way.

Can they accept this new government system?
