He was a man of quiet faith and determined courage who lived by an unwavering code of honor. He was a firm believer that the good guys would win and the bad guys would lose, although it didn't mean there wouldn't be casualties or injuries in the process of winning. EMP survivor Chris Chandler wasn't one to back away from overwhelming odds, and as of now, the odds weren't stacked in his favor. One way or the other, people were going to get hurt here or killed.
Dillon Stockdale is a broken man, crippled by agonizing grief over the realization his daughter perished in the wilderness. Dillon, together with Holly Hudson and his faithful dog, reluctantly begin the dangerous journey back to Holly's sprawling ranch. During the harrowing trip, they face murderous outlaws and violent weather, but they learn something invaluable that will change the course of many lives.
