From the post-apocalyptic novel After the Virus - A Surviralist's Journal (available on Amazon). When a deadly mutated virus sweeps the globe, survival expert Will Scott knows that his only chance is in the remote Ishi Wilderness, once the domain of “America’s last wild Indian”. He soon finds that surviving the elements is nothing compared to the relentless pursuit of a failed-state militia bent on killing every “surviralist” existing outside of the quarantine zone. When he rescues a teenage girl named Hope, whose family has been slaughtered and trains her in wilderness self-sufficiency, her skills eventually exceed even his. His compassion is repaid when Hope becomes the provider and the warrior needed for them to endure. Told first-person in the style of a daily diary, each episode contains one or more day’s journal entries of nearly 12 months on the run in the wild.

Adventure and Knowledge of Place

What I love about this series is that it highlights the local plants, animals and terrain of Northern California. Clearly the author is an experienced naturalist and survivalist. The story is great adventure and gives thoughtful ideas on what you might do if in an emergency you suddenly had to live off the land. A rare treat.

Mediocre at best

The lack of research into how special forces are selected and operate is obnoxiously obvious. The authors portrayal of Will as non emotional at times to overly angry and aggressive is a sign of the lacking ability to understand a soldiers mind. Soldiers, especially American soldiers, aren’t robots, they think and feel. The idea that a soldier is almost useless without a chain of command is preposterous. Soldiers are trained to evaluate each order to decide for themselves whether or not it is a lawful and moral order. The lack of understanding of soldiers, especially special forces, has led the author to assume certain aspects of soldiering do not exists. This is a bad oversight on the author’s part for not doing hardly any research into soldiering and the lasting effects.
