The Last Pilgrims Book Giveaway

For a second giveaway I have two copies of The Last Pilgrims.

This is a very good book written by Michael Bunker, the Author of Surviving Off Off-Grid.  The following is a short segment about the book from the website:

"Michael Bunker, author of the Amazon.com bestselling non-fiction book Surviving Off Off-Grid, would like to introduce you to one of the most exciting, heart-pounding, and unique novels to come around in a generation.  More than your typical post-apocalyptic faire, The Last Pilgrims could well be one of the most important and prescient novels of our time.  Twenty years in the future is five-hundred years in the past.  It is just two decades after the worldwide societal collapse and the Vallenses, an Amish-like “plain people” living and surviving in what was once Central Texas, are under attack by the King of Aztlan and his armies. The pacifistic Vallenses are defended by the shadowy Ghost Militia and their inspiring leader Phillip, a militant freeman who wages a guerilla war with Aztlan.

Jonathan Wall and the thriving agrarian community of Vallenses have prospered by living the simple and sustainable ways of the past.  In a massively depopulated world, balkanization is a reality and monarchy is back.  A corrupt kingdom arises, led by a king who cannot abide freemen on lands that he covets.  Just as the Vallenses send off a plea to the benevolent King of the South States, a mysterious assassin misses his target: Jonathan Wall.

Phillip “the Ghost” is on a personal mission to save the Vallenses – even if it is against their will, while Jonathan’s own son David and his fearless teenage daughter Ruth are led to challenge their pacifistic upbringing and question whether or not the time has come for the Vallenses to fight for the land, the people, and the God they love.

The Last Pilgrims is a modern re-telling of the forgotten history of the Ancient Waldenses - simple farmers who lived in the valleys of the Alps for hundreds of years despite repeated attempts to annihilate them.  Full of tragedy, adventure, humor, and love, The Last Pilgrims is a rare post-apocalyptic saga that takes history and casts it into the future, while examining that future in light of the errors of the present and the past. "

What an interesting outline. I'd love to get a copy of the book. Unfortunately, I'm not a blogger so this will be my only entry but it's better than none I suppose. Thanks for the opportunity to win this exciting-looking book!

And the winners are............. The Caldwells and Samantha Rebstock. If you can send me your contact information (email and address) by going to the "Contact Me" tab at the top of the page I will try and get the books out this week.

Tony Konvalin said...

As we are in the final throws of packing to move I will need to hear from the Caldwells and Samantha by Sunday or I will need to pick another winner. We need to get things out of the way as we will be living out fo suitcases for a short time as we finalize things for a new home.

Tony Konvalin said...

Since I have to get things packed up I will have to make a cut off of 5PM Monday (3/26) to pick a new winner of the books. Sorry to have to do this but as I have no way to get hold of the Caldwells or Samantha Rebstock this is what I have to do.

I truly hope they check in before then.

Grace and Peace,
Tony

Tony Konvalin said...

Thankfully Samantha got hold of me today but the Caldwell's did not so I had to draw a new winner and that winner is Kevin Amundson. Congratulations Kevin.
