The book’s premise: After Earth suffers a natural catastrophe that has brought with it electromagnetic pulse-like devastation, Colton Rayner's family must fight to survive in an unfamiliar world. All modern means of communication have been lost and times are hard; there's no electricity, stores have been looted and abandoned, gas pumps don't work, and there's no way to buy food or call for medical help. The family finds they must rely on horses, wagons, and their own ingenuity and will to live.
The patriarch of this farm family, Harold Engquist, had tried to prepare his loved ones in advance with the skills and the provisions needed to endure hard times, but did he do enough? Will his food stores attract desperate people who are in search of food and clean water, or worse yet, the unwanted attention of the degenerate Claggit family?
Lisa Poché Calhoun worked in front of the camera in the film industry.

She worked her way up and by the time an injury sidelined her, she had been the location manager on several feature films. She is preparing a sequel to her debut novel.
