Overview

John and Ellen and their neighbors, all farmers in Southeastern Ohio, witness the depravity of economic destruction brought about by a government that has seized control during an economic downturn. The government imposes a socialistic republic on America, but it fails to revive the economy. But by having the media and Congress on their side, they continue in their misguided ways in a vain attempt to retain power. The situation is brought to the farm in several different examples until a man, Jesse Eldridge, arrives. He is on his way west to seek freedom in a sympathetic environment. He stops long enough to leave a lasting mark on the Ohio residents.

The results of that trek west ends with the establishment of a new nation as an alternative to the United States. Based on the principles of the Founding Fathers, Eldridge attempts to recreate a society of simpler values that relies on the best of human nature at the heart of government. He believes that power in the hands of people is the best way to provide honest and moral leadership.

The book is a fictional story of what could happen if we, as a free nation, allow too much power to fall into the hands of one group of people. A group determined to impose their concept of how the United States and the World should be governed.
