    Bo Mason, his wife, and his two boys live a transient life of poverty and despair. Drifting from town to town and from state to state, the violent, ruthless Bo seeks his fortune in the hotel business, in new farmland, and, eventually, in illegal rum-running throughout the treacherous back roads of the American Northwest.

    Heimo says: "deeply moving rollercoaster ride"
    "An amazing story, a "modern" classic"

    How did I not know of this book until now?

    This is truly a marvelous story written with intelligence and humanity. This story has something for everyone.

    I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone. It's hard to imagine that there's anybody out there that would not be moved and touched by this story.

    299 Days: The Preparation, the first audiobook in the 299 Days series, depicts the inner struggles Grant must face as he exists in a social system he recognizes as unsustainable and on the verge of collapse, but one in which he has built his life around. What begins as a return to his roots, self-sufficiency and independence, becomes a full blown move to prepare for what may come.

    Les says: "The most accurate "PREPPER" story ever written!!!"

    Where does 299 Days rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Either this guy, (the author) is a nut or a visionary. 'Maybe' you owe it to yourself to hear what he has to say and make your own decision. I want to convince myself that he is a "nut" and that we can just roll along living life, and not need to worry about the government destroying the economy. However, now that I have read this, (and I almost wish I hadn't) I've got this little voice telling me to start stock piling food, guns and gold. DAMN! Try to get past the beer drinking and gun obsessiveness. Honestly, I don't know if this is a "good book." (probably not in the classic sense) but it sure managed to unsettle me. Didn't want to read it, but was compelled to read till the end. Not entertaining, more a compulsion.
