Through prudent planning, Texas protected its power grid from the impact of the devastating electromagnetic pulse attack, but was it enough? The new nation is but an island surrounded by chaos and devastation. Food is running out for its nearly 30 million citizens while millions of refugees press against the border fencing erected to keep them out. The pressure is on and an unexpected catalyst is about to create havoc for all Texans, including the Armstrong Ranch.

I wish I knew more history and geography but the the story is great
The story never wains. As soon as a screen is done you’re into the next, but not so fast to overwhelm. It reads like history.
The touch of English accent sets the stage and is easy to listen to and brings a full story and characters to life

Where did writing, culture, and agriculture begin? The Middle East is the cradle of civilization - where humankind once roamed in small groups of hunter-gatherers and foraged for food and shelter, then learned to plant crops and build structures. Today, we are an advanced civilization that has conquered the skies, oceans, and even the moon. To understand how this transformation occurred, take a brief trip back into the history of the Middle East, where it all began.

As brief a history as you can have and still cover all the major points of the land the people there religion and advancements
The narration seems very deliberate until you consider the abundance of information and it’s potentially global audiance
