I have started reading a book I came across called, 'The Patriots', which was written by a dedicated Rural American Prepper was back in 2009. It is a novel which describes what would happen if the USA and World Economy collapsed and how a group of rural Preppers would attempt to survive. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Patriots-Surviving-Collapse-James-Rawles-ebook/dp/B003ODHO8G 'In this post-apocalyptic thriller, a group of American friends search for safety following disaster, but danger is hunting for them. America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse—the stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce, and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city. As hordes of refugees and looters pour out of the cities, a small group of friends living in the Midwest desperately tries to make their way to a safe-haven ranch in northern Idaho. The journey requires all their skill and training since communication, commerce, transportation and law enforcement have all disappeared. Once at the ranch, the group fends off vicious attacks from outsiders and then looks to join other groups that are trying to restore true Constitutional law to the country. Patriots is a thrilling narrative depicting fictional characters using authentic survivalist techniques to endure the collapse of the American civilization. Reading this compelling, fast-paced novel could one day mean the difference between life and death. Praise for James Wesley, Rawles “Rawles is an amazingly gifted author who has singlehandedly reignited the postapocalyptic thriller.” —Brad Thor, #1 New York Times–bestselling author'
