Publisher's Summary

The Shepherd: A Society Lost is an action-packed post-apocalyptic thrill ride detailing the struggles of former sheriff Jessie Townsend as he and his family seek shelter from a crumbling world with a self-sufficient life on a homestead deep in the Rocky Mountains. Sanctuary soon becomes what he meant to escape, peaceful bliss slipping into desperation and despair in the aftermath of events that shook the foundations that shaped our world to the core. An unholy alliance of conspirators had sought the collapse of our civilization in order to rebuild and reclaim it as their own. Never truly intending to coexist, the unlikely allies found their courses diverging, leading to a struggle that dealt the final death blows to our society. In the absence of the order and structure of our modern civilization, evil, suffering, and chaos were unleashed throughout the world. As the post-collapse struggles of the outside world begin to threaten Jessie's mountain hideaway, a return to the world he left behind becomes a chance for redemption and survival in a society lost.

What a story. Absolutely Loved It.

Bravo Mr. Bird. This story is full of heartbreak and elation, defeat and victory. On to the sequel.

Life is good until lawlessness catches up

Our hero and former sheriff Jessie Townsend with wife and children escape the chaos of our collapsing country and retreat to a cabin in the Rocky Mountains. Life is good until the expanding lawlessness catches up with them. Jessie is dealt a disastrous blow which leaves his life and mental state in ruin. A surviving father and daughter happen upon Jessie's homestead and their companionship brings Jessie out of his despair. Jessie decides there is nothing holding him at his present location and heads out to find a sister he hasn't seen in years. So we find ourselves following Jessie as he travels cross country facing danger from all corners both animal and human. Better than three; three.point.five
