A Great Complement

The editor of Backdoor Survival compares A Time to Endure to Patriots.

It amazes me how often events in life come in pairs. A few days ago I discovered that New York Times best-selling author, and the editor of SurvivalBlog, James Wesley Rawles recommended my novel, Through Many Fires.

A Time to Endure, by Kyle Pratt and Patriots, by James Wesley Rawles

Then Gaye Levy, editor of Backdoor Survival, one of the top survival and preparedness websites, reviewed A Time to Endure, the sequel to Through Many Fires and compared it favorably to Patriots, the first of a five book series, by Rawles. While the series as a whole has been well received the first novel, Patriots, has achieved a cult-like following in the prepper community.

A Time to Endure Compares to Patriots

In the review she states, “Halfway through (A Time to Endure) a lightbulb went off in my head. The...lessons I was learning not only rivaled those in Rawles’ Patriots, but they were kinder, gentler and less militaristic, in nature.” She goes on to say, “Whether you are new to the genre and to prepping, or an old pro like me, consider adding this book to your collection. You will not be disappointed.”

I’m grateful for the review and humbled by the comparison. 

How Did I Miss This?

I regularly visit SurvivalBlog, but somehow I missed this.

For many years SurvivalBlog was the top site among preppers. While the blog has fallen to fourth place in the rankings recently, the editor, James Wesley Rawles, remains the best known writer in the prepping field. He is also the New York Times best-selling author of the Patriots Novels.

While I don’t visit the site every day, I do consider myself a regular reader. So, I don’t know how I missed it when Mr. Rawles recently recommended my book, Through Many Fires, Strengthen What Remains.

Thank you, Mr. Rawles!
