The Unit, a family of father, mother, daughter, and son, struggle to find safety in a world gone mad in Terry DeHart's debut novel. Major cities lost, anarchy, and roving gangs create a post apocalyptic environment. Avoiding death and finding a place of safety propel the family on a journey without a certain destination. Finding food and ammunition for their few guns takes courage and cunning.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Jerry Sharpe is an ex-marine and, for him, survival means protecting his family by any means necessary.

Susan is learning just how far a mother will go for her children. But how far will she go for a man she doubted before the bombs fell? As Jerry's training and instincts take over, she is certain of one thing -- her children need her.

Melanie was going to go to college. Now, she is struggling to find a way to live in a world gone mad without losing sight of what she believes in.

Scotty has a new mission - more than survival. He was saved, and he'll be damned if he won't fight for what's right.

And Bill -- Bill was locked up, but the power went out and the guards left. Now he and his fellow inmates have realized that everything is free for the taking...if you're strong enough to hold on to it.
