Abstract/Description:
Yellowstone Exodus, a novella, is a reminder of society's fragility in the wake of naturally occurring catastrophes. The first of three parts, Yellowstone Exodus is book one in a trilogy of novellas intended to entertain, inspire, and forewarn its reader. Beginning in Denver, Colorado, this story redefines brotherhood and friendship as two best friends, Clayton Rudd and Raymond Montero, set out on a journey to reach the Montero family home in Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. Obstacles awaiting them include a nightmarish environment caused by the Yellowstone super-volcanic eruption, hostile enforcement of state borders in a nation stripped of its federal government, and the prisons of their own physical, mental, and spiritual endurances. The struggle of these men dwells deeper than simply living during the time of the great American diaspora, as they will need to deal with addiction, PTSD, depression, and denial. Encounters with strangers, along their way, establish impressions and illuminate an understanding of a super-power nation's freshly dispossessed population.
