For ten years, 15-year-old Walker Morgan has lived in the small and isolated town of Red Cedar, Oklahoma, where his parents have run an antique store. The three of them, as members of the Soldiers of God, have participated in weekend war games, gone to bible study, received training in wilderness survival skills, and participated in all the activities that are part of the life of their community. But something is different about Walker's family. His parents speak differently at home than with their friends, and they read a lot. And there are no photo albums, scrapbooks, or other evidence of extended family members, no mementos from a previous time. Shortly after Walker's father reveals that he is investigating the activities of the Soldiers of God for the FBI, Walker's mother is killed by members of the militia. With his mother gone and his father's fate uncertain, Walker begins the fight for his survival in rough physical and psychological terrain.
