The nation's breadbasket is crumbling. The journey home is a thousand miles. The choice is simple: survive or starve.

Tired of the usual post-apocalyptic fare? Welcome to your new addiction, from best-selling author Mike Kraus, writing with Marcus Richardson!

In a matter of days, America's breadbasket has turned to ash - not from fire, but from a botanical infection that spreads on the wind and can destroy thousands of acres of grain in an hour.

In Cold Valley, Wyoming, Pike Warren watches from his ranch as his small town spirals into anarchy and chaos. Torn between the love of his community and responsibility to his family, he has to make unthinkable choices, all while hoping his wife can somehow make it home safely.

A thousand miles away on Vancouver Island, Abby Warren's survival skills are being put to the test on a 'alone in the wilderness' reality TV show, but the dream of a lifetime quickly turns into a nightmare. Faced with an impossible decision to either wait for help or embark on a perilous journey home to her husband and children, she must navigate a crumbling society and find the strength to battle not just nature, but human nature as well.

Stranded in the Midwest while studying this new threat, USDA Field Agent Jordyn Wells races against time to find a cure to the disease that threatens to bring the nation to its knees. Friends are few and far between, enemies are around every corner, and her science may not be enough to keep the nation from succumbing to starvation.
