Book Review: Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse by James Wesley Rawles

A work of fiction that is so well written you would think he had lived through something.  It is a story set in a the not so distant future during a time of hyper-inflation and economic collapse.  He is a Christian writer and you will pick that up in his work but it is not forced nor is it the main focus of the story.  He does get pretty involved with his descriptions and novice preppers may get a bit lost with the terminology but I guarantee you will walk away a new sense of purpose.

From the back cover:
America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city
As hordes of refugees and looters pour out of the cities, a small group of friends living in the Midwest desperately tries to make their way to a safe-haven ranch in northern Idaho. The journey requires all their skill and training since communication, commerce, transportation and law enforcement have all disappeared. Once at the ranch, the group fends off vicious attacks from outsiders and then looks to join other groups that are trying to restore true Constitutional law to the country.
Patriots is a thrilling narrative depicting fictional characters using authentic survivalist techniques to endure the collapse of the American civilization. Reading this compelling, fast-paced novel could one day mean the difference between life and death.

Amazon has new and used prices but I bought it on my Kindle in both the book form and in an audible form.  In the audible book the man reading it does an excellent job, he has a very nice voice.  I had no problem keeping up.  If you want to read a good story that stresses the importance of prepping then grab this one.  You won't regret it.

You should know that this in not a novel on self-sufficiency, although it does talk about stockpiling food and water and using heirloom seeds.  It is still a fantastic read.

If you decide to purchase this book I respectfully ask that you use my link.  I do get a few cents if you purchase and every little penny helps me prep and convince my husband that this whole blog is a good idea.
