Book description:

In book one of The Sudden Quiet series, the reader enters a world struggling in the aftermath of an unthinkable catastrophe. Society has collapsed, the modern age has expired, and global mortality is curving toward 99 percent. In northern Michigan, the electrical grid has been down for over a year. Three scouts, all uninfected, start on a mission from Beaver Island to the darkened mainland. They’re on a search for allies and information, led by Keith Two-Crow, a Vietnam veteran and Ojibwe elder. Keith’s two charges, Mukwa and Miin, are foster siblings unrelated by blood but connected to the green-pulse of the planet by their adoptive grandmother, Samantha, a traditional healer and mystic. After reaching the mainland, the scouts are targeted by traffickers, befriended by eco-elves, and are astonished—as readers will be—at Mother Nature’s resurgence. Island and Main is a dark exploration of humanity and the hope and healing offered by community and our connection to nature.
