The World Ends in Hickory Hollow - Ardath Mayhar N/A

It was a day just like any other for the Hardemans. It was filled with work – hard work – but the kind of work that let them enjoy their accomplishments, small and large, and which rewarded them with a hand-made future. It was the kind of work honest, farm-people do. But it wasn't always like this.

Zack and Lucinda left their high-paying jobs in Houston, left behind careers for a different kind of life. For too many years, they had battled to make their way in the foaming insanity that was the modern world. They had grown up as neighbors on two small, hard-run farms at the back of beyond in East Texas. The couple returned to an abandoned family farm to carve out a simpler life, one which didn't include architecture or running a fair-sized photo lab, but which did include their children, each other, and a contact with nature and the land which was important to who they were.

A little out of touch? Sure they were. They didn't even realize it when the bombs dropped...
