9780578088891: The Last Pilgrims (Volume 1)

Twenty years in the future is five-hundred years in the past.  It is just two decades after the worldwide societal collapse and the Vallenses, an Amish-like "plain people" living and surviving in what was once Central Texas, are under attack by the King of Aztlan and his armies. The pacifistic Vallenses are defended by the shadowy Ghost Militia and their inspiring leader Phillip, a militant freeman who wages a guerilla war with Aztlan.
 
Jonathan Wall and the agrarian community of Vallenses have prospered by living the simple and sustainable ways of the past.  In a massively depopulated world, monarchy is back, and a corrupt kingdom arises, led by a king who cannot abide freemen on lands that he covets.  Just as the Vallenses send off a plea to the benevolent King of the South States, a mysterious assassin misses his target: Jonathan Wall.
 
Phillip "the Ghost" is on a personal mission to save the Vallenses - even if it is against their will, while Jonathan's own son David and his fearless teenage daughter Ruth are led to challenge their pacifistic upbringing and question whether or not the time has come for the Vallenses to fight for the land, the people, and the God they love.
 
During times of instability, trepidation, and even fear, history is often the best light to our feet.  The Last Pilgrims is a modern re-telling of history of the Ancient Waldenses - simple farmers who lived in the valleys of the Alps for hundreds of years despite repeated attempts to annihilate them.  Full of tragedy, adventure, humor, and love, The Last Pilgrims is a rare post-apocalyptic saga that takes history and casts it into the future, while examining that future in light of the errors of both the present and the past.

About the Author:

Michael Bunker is an off-grid farmer, author, historian, philosopher, iconoclast, husband, and father of four living children. He lives with his family in a "plain" Christian Community in Central Texas where he reads and writes books... and occasionally tilts at windmills. After having great success writing non-fiction, Michael will be releasing his first fiction novel The Last Pilgrims (the first book in The Last Pilgrims saga) on February 24, 2012. His latest book, "Modern Religious Idols" is now available on Kindle and in Paperback. MRI follows up on Michael's national bestseller "Surviving Off Off-Grid" which went to #26 on the Amazon.com Bestseller list, and to #2 on the "Movers and Shakers" list. Michael interacts with his readers at facebook.com/michaelbunker, on Twitter as @mbunker, and can be heard twice a week on his BlogTalkRadio show at blogtalkradio.com/michaelbunker.

Review:

"Give a warm welcome to Michael Bunker, the new Tom Clancy of Post-Apocalyptic fiction" ~ Apocalypticfiction.com

"...if you are looking for some good fiction I definitely recommend getting a copy of The Last Pilgrims.  I can wholeheartedly say the story itself stands on its own as engaging, well-rounded, and well written." ~ NourishingDays.com

...I can tell you, very simply, that the story drew me in and it didn't disappoint me. There is a lot of action, and intrigue, and twists and turns to to the tale. The characters are interesting and, in some cases, very endearing.   All the great themes that you want in a good book are in The Last Pilgrims ~ Herrick Kimball, The Deliberate Agrarian

"...in The Last Pilgrims Michael Bunker brings to the forefront the error in our present-day society's 'normalcy bias' way of thinking... He demonstrates through the Vallenses Community the benefit of education, knowledge and acquired skills for when, not if, a collapse will happen..." ~ SurvivorJane.com
