Overview

This first book of the Holding Their Own series, A Story of Survival, is set in the year 2015, when the world is burdened by the second Great Depression. The United States, already weakened by internal strife, becomes the target of an international terror plot. A series of attacks results in thousands of casualties and disables the country's core infrastructure. The combination of economic hardship and the staggering blow of the terror attacks results in a collapse of the government. This is a realistic story of how an average, middle class couple survives the cascading events brought on by international politics, high tech military actions and the eventual downfall of society. All of their survival skills are tested during the action packed expedition in a world that resembles the American West of 200 years past.

As previewed in the Epilogue of book one, "Holding Their Own II: The Independents" is scheduled for publication Spring of 2012.

Editorial Reviews

reflexionesfinales.blogspot.com - Book Review
For our descriptive (versus qualitative) ratings (1 to 7 with 7 being highest)...I will give it a reluctant 7. For readability... I am going to say that it is a 6.

A grand tale and tome of survival knowledge. When I wasn't reading the novel, I found myself wondering how the characters were doing in their struggles. I also laughed out loud several times. The humor was a pleasant surprise.

This is more than just a story of survival. This is a fast paced action/adventure novel that rivals any techno thriller I have read. There is also a taste of classic old western novels throughout the book.

Holding Their Own is a great story for any Prepper that wants to take a break from non-fiction "how to" books in favor of easy, fun entertainment. The book is so good I added it to the List of 70 Great SHTF Fiction Books.

Meet the Author

Joe Nobody (pen name for the author who wishes to keep his identity confidential) has provided systems, consulting and training for the U.S. Army, Department of Homeland Security, Office of Naval Research, United States Border Patrol as well as several private firms and government agencies which cannot be disclosed.

He is currently active in this area and for the security of his family and ongoing business, wishes to remain anonymous.

He has over 30 years of competitive shooting experience, including IPSC, NRA, and other related organizations. He has been a firearms instructor and consultant for over 30 years and holds the rights to a United States Patent for a firearms modification.

Joe initially became involved in helping private citizens "prepare" at the request of his students and clients. A conscientious instructor, he would always inquire as to why they wanted to learn certain skills or techniques and often the response was to prepare for more than just simple home invasion or self-defense. If you ask Joe what his greatest attribute is, he will tell you he is a "problem solver" and uses his formal education in Systems Engineering to this end.

"As the economy worsens, world tensions rise, and the modern media propagates bad news faster than ever before, more and more people want to prepare. I wrote HOLDING because it allows me to reach more of the good folks who are concerned about their security. I want them to sleep better at night knowing they have a plan of defense should the 'Event' ever occur."
