Word of Alpha’s recovery spreads throughout the region. The news is welcomed by most - but not all. Some see the small Texas town as a threat, others want to dominate and control the prosperous community. Often, it’s difficult to discern friend from foe, and miscommunication can be deadly.
The legendary range wars of the early American West were brutal, bloody affairs. Water was often an excuse for the skirmishes, but rarely was it the true root of conflict. Political competition, an unquenchable thirst for power, and poor communications were the real catalysts for these violent struggles.
In the post-apocalyptic world of Bishop and Terri, circumstances are ripe for history to repeat. Electricity replaces water as the point of contention, the new world on the brink of falling into violent chaos, just like in the past. The issues run in tandem, human nature apparently unchanged in 200 years.
Join the citizens of post-collapse West Texas as they struggle to rebuild and improve their lives. It’s a journey filled with the joy of success and fraught with the peril of defeat.

This should be mandatory reading. The state of current affairs, this is not so out there...enjoyed this book a lot. Currently reading Holding Their Own VI, I hope there is more to come.
This is an amazing series - hoping for more to come!!!! Love it!
The last half of the story is pretty good, considering how weak and forced the first half was. The author obviously had the end in mind and had to find a way to get the characters there, which made the first half seem forced and unrealistic.
