This first book of the Holding Their Own series, A Story of Survival, is set in the year 2015, when the world is burdened by the second Great Depression. The United States, already weakened by internal strife, becomes the target of an international terror plot. A series of attacks results in thousands of casualties and disables the country's core infrastructure. The combination of economic hardship and the staggering blow of the terror attacks results in a collapse of the government.
This is a realistic story of how an average, middle class couple survives the cascading events brought on by international politics, high tech military actions and the eventual downfall of society. All of their survival skills are tested during the action packed expedition in a world that resembles the American West of 200 years past.

Sounds like it was recorded on a laptop
- M. Swales
A good story, just get past the terrible recording
yes, bought/downloaded the other 4 books in the series, which all have a much much much better standard of recording and narration
Surviviors - James Wesley, Rawles
The Survivalist Series - A. American
The Remaining - D. J. Molles
depends on the book, not the narrator
yes, enjoyed the series
give the first book in the series a chance, the recording is terrible quality (seriously - its terrible and sounds like its been chopped and pasted together from different recording sessions) and the narration is not the best (its clearly not the narrators 'day job'), but the story is good, and hooks you in. The other 4 books in the series (so far) are all recorded/narrated at a much better quality.
If i was the author/publisher, i would seriously think about getting this book (book 1 of the series) rerecorded, as it probably puts a lot of listeners off.
