I personally am not a big reader of fiction, but there are a few things I really like.  The Wayward Journey was one of those books that I couldn’t put down.  It is definitely one of my favorite books and I can’t wait for the 2nd one.

Think of what is happening now in Detroit with the bankruptcy they are going through, in this book most of the US is succumbing to the same demise.  With the high inflation and unemployment rates many are unable to afford the things they need, so when a natural disaster hits at this worst possible time there is really not much to do other than hunker down and defend yourself from the lawlessness and brutality that becomes everyday living.


When John the hero is on a business trip, a couple states away from his home, the disaster strikes.  John must use all his know how, and his tenacity to get back to his family when everything around him is falling apart.  Can he get to his family to protect them from the dangers?

That is just a little bit of what this book is about.  While this book is not as technical as the books from Rawles, Patriots and Survivors, I found it much more enjoyable and easy to read.  One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was that you get the story of John who is basically at this point a survivalist trying to live on whatever he can find and attain, but you also get the story of John’s wife and their middle class neighborhood.  Because of John’s prior preparations his family is more prepared than many others in the neighborhood.

There were a few techniques that I learned, but more than anything I think this is a great example of how people can act during tough times.  There will not only be some violent people, but some of the worst will be those that are manipulative and that are only trying to gain power and control for their own terrible motives.  Being able to see through people and figure out their motives will be very important in a TEOTWAWKI scenario.

Being that the book I received was one of the first issued there were a few editing errors, but this book has gone through 2 more edits and another proofread cycle.  So if you get the new version on Amazon it should have no errors.  Any of the errors I saw were also not a problem for me enjoying the book.

So if you are looking for an interesting, fun and easy read that will be beneficial to you as a prepper, this is a book to get.  Nathan really did a great job in writing this his first book and he really knows how to leave you wanting more.  He is not stopping there he is writing the 2nd volume of the Wayward Journey which will be a definite read for me as soon as it comes out.  If you are interested in checking this book out just click on any of the pictures.
