From the back of the book:
In the all-too-immediate future, the day has finally come when crime, drugs, and pollution have made the cities of the world virtually uninhabitable. Gangs roam the streets at will, the police have nearly surrendered, and the air and water are slowly killing the residents who remain. But one small group of survivors had decided to escape the madness. Packing what they can carry, they head off to what they hope will be the unspoiled wilderness of northern Canada, intent on making a new start, a new life. But nature isn't that forgiving. For far too long mankind has destroyed the planet, ravaging the landscape and slaughtering the animals. At long last, nature has had enough. Now the Earth is ready to fight back, to rid itself of its abusers. A new day has come. But will anyone survive...

Nature strikes back against the humans who have polluted and destroyed her for centuries. OK plot but slow in some parts.

This book is about the end times and a group of people deciding to not wait until the very end and seek out a new place to live in the wilderness. The author has a knack for drawing you in and FEELING what the people are experiencing, which is not all good and not all bad and even at times make you the reader wishing for such a group of people to escape this world with. I won't give away the ending but it was NOT what I expected but the story itself is a GREAT read for those who like suspence and mystery.

I found this a mildly entertaining read. The character development was pretty well done, but the overall plot of the book was thin. It made good beach reading, but was not good enough so that I would seek out any more of his books.
