Book Two: Survival 

(Immediate Response)
Currently in progress

Government is hanging by a thread. Warlords, roaming bandits, and armed insurrections exist in America. Families struggle to survive in huge crowded communal camps from coast to coast. Food, clothing, and cold are constant worries. New rigid attitudes, a forced work ethic, and mistakes are leading to revolution. The economy has shriveled. There’s a new currency. Whole industries are simply gone, confiscated. Fossil fuels are reserved for only government and military service.

Families are placed on farms with only hand tools. Food supplies must be supplemented by hunting and gathering. Housing has returned to pioneering expedients. Steve Ambler is a roving trouble shooter, serving a government with an uncertain future. The McCandless family finds old skills are required, must be relearned, and new defenses are necessary to survive with few resources.

Book two, Survival, sets the stage for The New Order.

Available from Amazon as a Kindle digital download and in print.

Book Three: The New Order 

(The Sorting Out Period - Initial Results)
Currently in progress

Economic collapse has forced sweeping confiscations of real and personal property and a conversion to a fully managed economy. Much of the population has been forced into, concentrated into, camps in warmer states. A desperate autocratic government has created a reformed education system, gigantic make-work salvage operations, and jobs training programs. Restructuring is rigorous and a requirement. Stringent vigorous military style law enforcement has brought personal safety. This new sense of safety and knowledge has encouraged a rapid flowering in personal and public attitudes and mores. Those changes transformed people’s lives even in remote rural areas.

Despite a collapse of the old democratic government, leadership retained the confidence of a grateful citizenry. A new Constitutional system is created. Unplanned circumstances introduces Alec McCandless to the new center of political power. His path to personal power has begun in the changed political landscape. That path would eventually bring him to tectonic political power.

Book three, The New Order, sets the stage for Shake-Out.

Book Four: Shake-Out 

(Churning Period, Fermentation, Final Result)
Currently In Progress

As opportunities developed, the McCandless family adapted to changing circumstances. They experienced extremes of weather and fluxuating harvest prices. They diversified their farming and business efforts into new markets. In this way, they avoided the worst ravages of high inflation and shortages that plagued the nation. Alec McCandless continues to dabble in politics, learning new skills as an orator. He is elected a Senator of the newly designed federal government. Trying to represent his constituents, he learns the realities of high stakes political maneuvers in the National Capitol in Colorado. The real, hidden story behind Alec McCandless’ Giant Wager, is revealed, taken from never before released family records.

The new democracy suffers from widespread corruption and malfeasance. These factors are a growing infection of the body politic. Hyper-inflation of the currency results, and economic Depression follows. This forces the third restructuring of the national government. Alec McCandless created a new national political party. He nominates himself for the Presidency. He runs a slugfest campaign, and is elected to the office of President of the New American Republic in a landslide.

Book four, Shake-Out, sets the stage for A New Vision.

Book Five: A New Vision 

(A New Leader)
Currently in Progress

Alec McCandless created a new national political party. He nominates himself for the Presidency. He runs a slugfest campaign against political corruption, and is elected to the office of President of the New American Republic in a landslide. Using the New Constitution that he had helped write, Alec immediately seizes the reins of The Executive political, economic, judicial and military powers. He gathers both ‘de jure’ and ‘de facto’ controls to himself.

The criminals and ‘wrong-headed’ governmental parasites were swiftly removed from their offices and consigned to house arrest, chain-gang labor, or executed. Broad economic changes were force fed through all channels of government, reaching from small farms to giant industries, and even to foreign relations. Alec McCandless "revolutionized" government personally, with the force of his personality and convictions, at lightning quick speed. Dramatic changes were realized within months, and the new order was arranged according to his new vision.

That new vision changed our nation, our people, and our government into a more conservative, protective, secure State. Alec McCandless, saw it, created it, and built it to last. We the People are The New American Republic.
