The list author says: "My favorite book, as a little girl, was The Boxcar Children. It is the story of four disenfranchised brothers and sisters who must scavenge and think creatively in order to survive. It totally captured me and set my love of any sort of "survivor" or "Apocalyptic" type of fiction.
It is amazing to watch how characters respond when their backs are against the wall, see how they make do in the face of adversity, how resourceful they can be when the familiar is no longer available.
There are some awesome stories and movies about the average man surviving change and hardships... like The Book of Eli, The Road, and The Boxcar Children. Or the granddaddy of post-apocalyptic, survivor novels, The Stand by Stephen King.
Survivor action/adventure tales,I believe, stir the primal in us, allowing us, as readers, to tap into a side of ourselves that our day-to-day existence has muted."
"New from a Canadian author. Set in Alberta, the power grid has gone down. Bikers unite to take over the world, but a survivalist, a lone wolf, and a woman stand in their way. Lots of action, suspense, romance, and real people."
