Publisher's Summary

When everything you count on for your existence fails, could you survive?
Within days of a series of monster solar storms slamming into earth, electrical grids fail and everything in the northern hemisphere with a computer chip ceases functioning. Electricity won't be completely restored for at least a decade, and the result is that everything modern life depends on to function is gone. There is no way to pump gas or water. Cell towers are wiped out, along with satellites. Airplanes and most vehicles will not operate. Communication is practically impossible. People cannot access life-saving prescription drugs or food. Police, fire services, and the military are overwhelmed, and hospitals can't cope. There's no one to come to the rescue, and as mass panic ensues, people begin dying. Fear and violence escalate until society collapses.
An unlikely hero emerges.
Chaco is a well-educated freedom fighter on a death list in El Salvador. Having fled to the United States, he is in hiding by working for a wealthy couple as their handyman and gardener. Following the disaster, he reveals his true identity, and convinces his employers and their neighbors to follow him over brutal mountain passes to a self-sufficient commune nearly 800 miles away.
But only a few will survive.

Quite the adventure

Chaco is not your typical end of the world adventure. It’s a character driven story. You’ll fall in love with some and cheer them on while hoping some evil power will destroy others. Peggy does a wonderful job of making you feel like your part of this face-paced adventure.

Chris Abell did an amazing performance as well bringing all the characters to life.

Audible book provided for my honest review.

Not Science Fiction could be Science Fact

Where does Chaco rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the better books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Star is Chaco because it is a character with depth.

What about Chris Abell’s performance did you like?

His accents were well done.He is a good performer.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Truth can be stranger then Fiction

Any additional comments?

The Risk of EMP Weapons to our Infrastructure especially the Electric Grid is real.

It would require over 70 Billion Dollars to upgrade our Grid to insure that intense Sun Spot
activity or the use of a EMP Device would not seriously impact our country.

All Americans should tell their Representatives in DC that these upgrades are part of our National Defense and that a 70 Billion investment could protect our Multi Trillion Dollar economy.

This story could be Science fact in the future and we are sitting Ducks at this time.
