After millennia of conflict, of wars, pestilences, famines, and endless conflict, humanity has finally achieved a measure of peace. Earth is quiet and prosperous.
As always, peace comes with a price. Prosperity has led to population, and the demand for space and resources is forcing humanity to look outwards, past the Moon, past the solar system, to the stars. In the years following the invention of the first interstellar ships, mining and colonization ships of Off-World Mining & Exploration, Inc. have spread to a dozen habitable worlds.
On the wilderness world of Forest, a young Company hunter and pioneer, Mike Crider, makes first contact with forces of the hostile Grugell Empire. Once again humanity faces crisis and conflict as Mike Crider leads the militia that defeats the Grugell on Forest, and goes on to help form the first interstellar government.
The fledgling Confederation faces one paramount task: Build a Navy for the war that they know is coming.
Through guerilla battles in the deep woods, canyons and prairies of the wilderness world Forest, through the struggle to set up a new interstellar government, through the battles of the first Galactic War, the Crider family overcomes the forces of the hostile Grugell Empire to emerge as the Confederation’s Founding Family.
The Crider Chronicles is available to purchase as a printed book or an eBook!
