Publisher's Summary

On a Friday afternoon before Labor Day, Americans are getting ready for the holiday weekend, completely unaware of a long-planned terrorist plot about to be launched against the country. Kyle Tait is settling in for his flight home to Montana when a single nuclear bomb is detonated 300 miles above the heart of America. The blast, an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), destroys every electrical device in the country, and results in the crippling of the power grid, the shutting down of modern communications, and bringing to a halt most forms of transportation.

Kyle narrowly escapes when his airplane crashes on take-off, only to find himself stranded 2,000 miles from home in a country that has been forced, from a technological standpoint, back to the 19th century. Confused, hurt, scared, and alone, Kyle must make his way across a hostile continent to a family he's not even sure has survived the effects of the attack. As Kyle forges his way home, his frightened family faces their own struggles for survival in a community trying to halt its slow spiral into chaos and anarchy.

77 Days in September follows Kyle and his wife, Jennifer, as they are stretched past their breaking point, but find in their devotion to each other the strength to persevere.

What is an EMP?

An EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) is a magnetic pulse that overwhelms, and thus destroys, all electronic devices exposed to it. It is the most serious threat faced by a technologically advanced society. An EMP can be human caused, through the detonation of a nuclear bomb high above the atmosphere, or natural, through a severe geo-magnetic storm. In multiple reports prepared for Congress, scientists predict the complete destruction of modern American society and question our ability to ever recover if we are the target of an EMP attack. Further, some predict the death toll in America in the aftermath of such an event to be in excess of 200 million.

About the author: Ray Gorham lives in the small farming community of Shepherd, Montana with his wife and five children. He runs his log-home business by day and writes in the evenings, on weekends, and whenever the weather keeps him inside.

    "Don’t waste a credit on this"

    This had to be written as a senior project from some high school in Montana. Poorly written and delivered.

    "good writing, meager story"

    while the writing was good, I just found the poor choices made by Kyle to be infuriating, and really put my mood down, overall it was ik, just not worth my one point.

    Story
    "Good story, horrible reader."

    I enjoyed the story very much. The only downfall was the narrator or reader of the story. Very dull very boring no intonation in his voice I barely got through the book because of the reader.

    "definitely written by an older religious man."

    kept my interest for the most part. Mane character is a woos. Characters more people you would meet in the 1940s.

    Story
    "One of the Best"

    While I've read many books in this genre, I have to say this one is one of the best. Realistic and gripping. Kyle's journey is both believable and realistic with enough intrigue and drama to keep the reader intensely interested and engaged.
    The Author inserts a dynamic generally left out in other novels of this type, which is the very human element of emotional turmoil felt by all parties during the collapse. Very well written.

    "Beautiful Commitment"

    different than most SciFi in that it is a real possibility. Well written, believable and wonderful picture of undying love and commitment.

    "not worth your time or money"

    the only thing positive about this book was the narration. Narrator did excellent job between voices. now for the book. i read a few previous reviews and should have listeed to them. for a TEOTWAWKI it was unrealistic especially if you have ever read or listened to anyother book. the main characters should have been dead from mistakes in first couple of chapters. i will not buy second book

    "Good story, but focused on basically 2 people"

    This was well done, but I wanted to hear other people's stories too. What happened in other cities.
    I appreciated that the couple stayed faithful to each other.

    Story
    "Kyle Tait is quite the wimp"

    Terrorists detonate a nuclear bomb in the atmosphere above the United States bringing down the grid, the majority of electronics and automobiles via EMP. While the story starts out as your typical grid down EMP tale, it is anything but. The main characters are not preppers, or retired Special Forces, or active military, or law enforcement. These are just regular people dealing with extraordinary circumstances. On second thought, after venturing further into the story I find our protagonist, Kyle Tait is quite the wimp, having little to no backbone. Quite disappointing! Kyle survives an airline crash near Houston, Texas and for the remainder of the volume must journey home to Deer Creek, Montana 2,000 miles distant. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Kyle’s wife and children are facing their own bundle of chaos. The wife, Jennifer must face this disaster on her own, not quite knowing exactly what to do, while continuing to care for their three children. I believe Jennifer had a much harder go of it than our boy Kyle.
