Patriotic Monasteries: Preserving American Heritage in the Face of Imminent Destruction

True Accounts

Working In The Northwest Woods
“In this first-hand account of a decade spent in the outdoors in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, we are taken on a tour of life inside the United States Forest Service when, as a first year seasonal, a young man who has spent his life in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri is transported to the Cascades. Follow him as he learns his way around the rugged terrain of the big timber country. From personal narrative of his initial experiences to gripping accounts of encounters with wild weather, wild fire and wildlife, the author takes you on a journey into the backcountry. Read about being face to face with bears, dodging lightning bolts and being surrounded by wildfire. These are stories telling of a life that is growing harder and harder to find in our mechanized and technological world. This book is a terrific summary of what it is really like to live your life on the outside.”

I Travel Light: The Man Who Walked Out of the World (The Adventures of a Greenman Series (Complete set))
“he must do without many of the things that cost him so much money, work less and provide for his own basic human needs, self-sufficiently. … eventually building a tree house to live in. … The nomad winds himself through the weird and wonderful of the world, guided by an immense sense of intuition. Living with frequent mysterious happenings and coming to terms with the many facets of his spiritual gifts, he lives in a ruin in the mountains of Spain and becomes a fisherman in India, before getting caught up in a Tsunami. Eventually he renounces everything he owns, except for the clothes he stands in. He sets off on a walkabout without even a bag or destination, wandering Eastern Europe, responding to an inner calling. Throughout his journeys, he grounds himself in earthly pursuits, volunteering at organic farms, orphanages and communities in many countries, developing new skills. After a decade of living simply, he walks back into the world, into the rat-race, only to discover that he has gone so far, for so long, that he no longer knows how to live in it.”

Discover how they survived with just the clothes on their backs, some limited technology and their wits and resolve. In a world without computers, without the basic items we use each day, could you survive?”

Collapse, Post-Apocalypse, Speculative Futures

In a narrative poignant and uplifting, the author takes Kelin and Josh through their struggles to survive and Kelin to reunite with his family. Allies join them and foes impede them on their journey across a decimated America. They find that only tiny pockets of civilization have survived and some of those are not so civil. Kelin’s Journey is a must read for any age reader who enjoys a classic quest in a modern, realistic setting where the heroes must display ingenuity, leadership and courage to overcome obstacles presented by man and nature.”

If she can’t save the nation from its fate, she will do everything in her power to ensure her family’s survival, for with them lies the seed of hope for the future of democracy.”
