This limited special edition includes the first two parts of Michael Bunker's bestselling Pennsylvania series. This edition was created for those few readers who wanted the Pennsylvania story in a print edition, but who didn't want to wait for the full collected novel of all five parts. If you can wait, the collected print edition should be out in the first half of 2014. Jedidiah Troyer just wants to start a farm and homestead on some affordable land in a new Amish community, but... what if the only good, cheap, available land was on another planet? So now Jed has signed up for an emigration program that is intent on colonizing the distant planet of New Pennsylvania. He faces a despotic government agency at war with rebels, the caprices of interstellar travel, a shadowy futuristic insurgency on his new planet, and more mysteries than he can count as he tries to fulfill his dream of owning his own farm. Jedediah Troyer and his new friend Dawn arrive on New Pennsylvania - in the middle of a rebel uprising. TRACE, the resistance group that is rising up against Transport, takes on the mission of getting Jed from the City to the Amish Zone. Space pioneering isn't as easy as it sounds when you're "plain." Things might work out for Jed... if he can ever get to his new home.
