The old-timers say it started back in the middle somewhere, when hope was still an option. Before some idiot decided the best way to break the back of the Resistance was to use The Bomb.
Everything went to hell at that point.
Dale just wants to be a Park Ranger, a warrior on the front lines between the Coastal Republic and the New Confederacy. His youth counts against him, but he will inherit the wisdom and strength of Stan Hawkins, The Last Ranger, if they both live long enough.
A new, post-apocalyptic, dystopian world about a handful of men and women trying to hold things together after the world falls apart and the war continues. "The Rangers" contains "The Last Ranger" (previously published in "Alternate Truths") and four additional stories about Dale Embry.
