9781481083799: The Mountains, the Rivers, and the Plains

This book combines 2018 A.D. and its sequel WITH THE COLD CAME AN INFERENCE OF EVIL into one volume. Since the story and themes are timeless, particular year references have been removed by the author to make the story seem less dated as time passes in the real world. Now that the two novels have been combined into one volume, specific years that were previously mentioned have been indicated more vaguely as within a period known to be in the Twenty-first Century. These years were speculative anyway, not crucial to the story, and do not affect it in any way. It hasn't happened yet. The changes are very minor and do not affect the flow or naturalness of the narrative. The issue is extremely minor as specific years were never a major point. Historical references are not changed, and some years are mentioned with regard to them. This novel describes the adventures of freedom-loving, ordinary individuals trying to survive in (and flee from) a socialist/fascist America of the future. The story involves some people dealing with life under these totalitarian conditions, while others have decided to remove themselves from that same environment. The futuristic (but not science-fiction) story presupposes a totalitarian national government (with both fascist and socialist elements) and state governments that are resisting the national leadership by following more traditional American and free-market practices and policies. The villain of the story is impending growth of totalitarianism and its agents. This is not a political book and it does not go deeply into a future government's structure or the supposed business world of that time. The characters are Christian people of faith, but this is not a religious book. The Christian characters in it have flaws and occasionally curse. A lot is covered in a small book without it being forced. Faith, the concept of self defense, sacrifice, love, patriotism, self discipline, and political philosophies, all are observed across the span of America from Appalachia to the Great Plains, as this is a song about both Americans and their beloved land.
