As this novel opens, the American republic is getting a second chance. Decades after the independent United States of America was absorbed into a world government, a rebel movement has ousted the globalists. The rebels were led by Alexander Birch, a fighter from the mountains of North Carolina. But while Birch is satisfied with the turn of events in the nation, a mysterious threat of a scandal is troubling him. For help, he turns to another North Carolinian, the writer Howard Spence. Through Spence, Birch and the reader learn the story of two young men, their unlikely friendship, the loves they find, the company they build, and the role they play in bringing liberty back to this country. It’s a story of danger and personal betrayals, but also of faith in the old values, courage–and time travel.
