A very interesting premise. A Can Air plane crashes purposely into the Fermi nuclear plant. As a result America declares a war of sorts on Canada, demanding reparations by way of land and goods to make up for the destruction of American farmland etc.

A Canadian, Will Anderson, struggling to make his way from Essex County back to B.C. and his girlfriend, finds himself the leader of a Canadian resistance.

This book reminded me at first of The Last Canadian. It had that one-man-against-the-world feel
I really enjoyed the local references. The premise was very interesting. When I read a book like this it makes me think of my ability to be self sufficient. The main character's path I found a little unbelievable but maybe that is just because of the fact that the book was plot driven more than character...... All In all a very good book.
