This audiobook combines the three postapocalyptic adventure books of the Solitary Man Series. Look around. Millions of preppers are working feverishly every day to get prepared for what they fear is a disaster about to happen in America. The motivation for preparing differs for each person. Donald is getting his farmstead prepared in case a predicted solar storm takes out the electrical grid. Some folks might call what Donald is trying to create as a bug-out location. Other people consider his little rural house as an effort to become more self-sufficient, like a homesteader.

Feels like I am along for the ride as a solitary man outfitted, nutured and 'battened down the hatches' at his refuge in the event of Grid Down situation. It had me pondering my own preparedness in face of disasters, yet as with all Ron Foster's books, there are many tips and resources included with an engaging tale peopled with relatable characters.

The characters from the classic Prepper Trilogy have moved from their survival retreat on the lake and have taken up city living in one of the FEMA reconstruction towns. The government is attempting to jump start the economy once more after a solar storm took down the grid and the economy 10 long years ago. Politics and a religious cult leader who is a decedent of a Kudzu salesman threaten to upset the survivor's plans to restart their lives as the stresses of rejoining civilization mount.

I was attracted to this one because of Kudzu in title and being familiar with Ron Foster's writings, I knew this one would be chock full of prepper know how. However, it was the depth of history of kudzu in the southern states and the many uses of this vigorous flowering vine that added a richness of flavor to this narrated book.

After a solar storm devastated technology in the world, the acclaimed series of books from the Prepper Trilogy which were combined under the title Our End Of the Lake told what occurred before, but not after, the community took on more people to feed and support. They began to starve and were forced to look for solutions further afield. The four Prepper Novelettes telling the stories of your favorite characters are now combined to give you the further saga of the survivors.

The believable dialogue of the characters peopling this Southern Survival story were very engaging and the fact that real survival tips were scattered throughout doubled my enjoyment. The narrator Duane Sharp really delivered with his ability to switch between a wide variety of accents, such as Cajun, British, and a range of Southern voices. Hope that the author Ron Foster gets offers for making Prepper's Road March trilogy and this book into a movie, though listening to this one was so entertaining as to leave me feeling I was in amongst the action.
