Survival. For him and his family.
The emergency wilderness retreat had been found, fortified and supplied. Now the ultimate crisis was upon them: nuclear strike and Russian invasion.
With Rourke half a continent away from family and home.
And so began a desperate, epic journey to a home that might not even exist any more, across an America shattered and burning, where murderous bands fought and killed. Killed for food, for clothing, weapons, and even from a sheer lawless lust for destruction.
