After the Earth suffers a natural
catastrophe that has brought with it EMP-like devastation, Colton
Rayner’s family must fight to survive in an unfamiliar world. All modern
means of communication have been lost and times are hard; there’s no
electricity, stores have been looted and abandoned, gas pumps don’t
work, and there’s no way to buy food or call for medical help. The
family finds they must rely on horses, wagons, and their own ingenuity
and will to live.
The patriarch of this farm family, Harold Engquist, had tried to prepare
his loved ones in advance with the skills and the provisions needed to
endure hard times, but did he do enough? Will his food stores attract
desperate people who are in search of food and clean water, or worse
yet, the unwanted attention of the degenerate Claggit family?
Meanwhile, Abby, a lovely stranded stranger, unloads her two horses and
leaves her truck and trailer on the highway to go in search of help. She
happens upon the family's farm, which soon pits Colt and his cousin
Tyler against each other as they vie for her attention.
