American Evolution-
Adolescence of a Nation
An 'End of America' story for those
whose rose-colored glasses have
been shattered, but who refuse to
hide behind the barrel of a gun.

If you realize that the coming
collapse will be more about pulling
together and community than
everyone becoming zombie road
warriors, this is your story.

If you know that the world can be a
dangerous place and that people
can do awful things to each other,
but believe that good people do NOT
become bad people under stress,
but are more likely to become
heroes, this is your story.

If you've been smacked down by
abuse, poverty, discrimination,
addiction, violence of all nature and
have come out the other side
stronger but not callous, even more
compassionate than before, this is
your story.

If you believe in a better America for
everyone- not just the powerful and
mighty, but also the small and
insignificant, and that this can be
accomplished by ordinary people
who are willing to fight without
violence and be courageous in the
face of adversity, this is the story
I've written.

And I've written it for you.

"They drove as night fell and the
evening fog rolled in, as it did every
day. Both seemed suddenly of a
menacing and unnatural nature.

The air smelled metallic, felt
electrical. The fog burned their eyes
and froze on their eyelashes. Both
Griffin and Eliza had grown up in
the polluted atmosphere, but
somehow it had been cushioned and
masked by the constant vibration
and hum of their mechanized world.

Eliza started to cry, tears freezing on
her cheeks even though it was not
winter. They’d been so close.

So close to bringing the world
around to a better future, not just
for the very wealthy, but for
everyone. They had been sure that
their child would be born into the
new world, and they were right.

And heartbreakingly wrong."

What people are saying about American

"An outstanding glimpse into a society in
the future. It tells the story of what could
happen in America if.... Things were so bad
in the US that other countries imposed
sanctions on us. Imagine that?
Losing the ability to bond with each other
(and thus communication), the members of
the old society started to fight each other. It
illustrates the power of men working
together in small communities to help each
I thought the message of the three stone
soup was incredible. Especially the second
telling later in the book.
A quote which I found most pertinent: "Life
is evaluation, evolution and change"..
Well done to this author and most highly
recommended."- Amazon Reader

"Prescient, prophetic, optimistic...I think it
would make a good screen play. Through
that the characters could be more fleshed
out and the story could become more in
Overall, I found it stimulating, thought
provoking...and perhaps a wake-up call to
our collective possible future. Would
definitely recommend young adults read the
book (meaning pre teens and teens)
important message.- Amazon reader

"Years ago up here, back in the before land
speculation and development, when there
were food co-ops and pot luck gatherings
were a weekly thing...even in winter...there
was a small restaurant called 'The Soup
Stone' was a clear your own table, whole
foods place...plenty of hearty/hardy viddles.
Simple and communal.
That's one of the great things about the's geared for many age it
can be read by or to anyone...I kinda
thought that was the message of the book,
in a way. It crosses all barriers, brings
young and old together, closing the circle."-
Amazon reader

"I'm giving "American Evolution" five stars
simply because it is an excellent story, a
different SHTF story then most any other,
It's well written, well thought out and brings
out a seemingly new concept to the usual
PAW, SHTF book. No where is it written that
we will turn into beasts when the day
comes, and why would we? I'm sure some
will but most won't."- Amazon reader

What if it was the
end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it and people
decided to work cooperatively to breathe
new life into a society that had taken its last
gasp? Author Sheri Dixon explores this
question with her book American Evolution.
This is a thought-provoking twist on a
post-apocalyptic tale. Most authors in this
genre tend to present stories that are heavy
on religion to provide a moral compass and
even heavier on paramilitary gear to
provide a defense against the amoral
zombie hordes that inevitably show up.
Dixon's view is far more optimistic. She
paints a scene that includes communal
living and non-traditional families. The
characters make the best of a
post-apocalyptic world that wasn't triggered
by a single event, but by the cumulative
effect of decades of poor decision-making
and greed.
I have to admit that this book is not for
everyone. If you don't have an open mind
and believe that the end of the world will
only occur in a hail of bullets, then this is
not the book for you. If you believe that only
people of a single faith or belief system will
be fortunate enough to survive to inherit
the earth, then this is most likely not a story
that would interest you.
However, if you are willing to embrace the
notion that people are inherently good and
want to help each other through their
darkest hours, then you will surely enjoy
this beautiful story about rebuilding a
broken society utilizing the tools of love,
compassion and cooperation. Sheri Dixon
has created a story that demonstrates her
belief that it takes a village to raise not only
a child, but to raise the standards of the
human experience as a whole."- Amazon
"I live in New York City
and try to walk the
streets as often as I can.
It's a great way to
observe people and
culture and interactions
and contrasting
architecture. It's also a
good way to daydream.
Sometimes I try to
imagine the street I'm
crossing as it might
have been a century
ago, two centuries ago,
or as far back as when
there were no streets.
Other times I think
forward. I wonder what
language I'd hear on the
sidewalks 50 years from
now. I wonder what
Central Park will look
like a hundred years
after I'm gone: Luxury
buildings? Covered in
water? Or will there be
a connection to the past
- will it be a commune
once again for the
huddling together to
make the most of what
little they have?

Because of these
daydreams, I may have a
different connection to
Sheri Dixon's "American
Evolution" that other
people. But I found it to
be much like one of my
daydreams about
tomorrow - only better
written! For me, I saw
the past and present
and future come
together in an odd
fantasy, while realizing
that -- at any given point
of civilization -- the
reality we experience
was only a fantasy for
the generations that
came before.

The book is a great ride.
And I thank my friend
who sent me a copy
knowing that I'd enjoy it"

"Thought provoking,
optimistic, this story
beautifully illustrates
that we always have a
choice between love
and fear, and love is
generally the wiser
choice. As people lived
together cooperatively
in the past, prior to the
invention of TV, cell
phones, etc., there's no
reason to assume we
could not do so again.
Perhaps better, next
time, for having learned
how not to do things

This was proven in New
York City, during that
big power failure a few
months after 9/11.
People predicted
disaster, but what they
got instead were people
sharing food out on
balconies, having
week-long block parties
and cook-outs in the
streets. Had the failure
been world-wide and
permanent, there's no
reason to assume that
people would not have
done what they've
always done: Have
community meetings
and brainstorm about
what to do next. Humans
are remarkably resilient
and adaptable. That's
why we're still here,
now" - Kindle Reader.

"Great read, I wish it
had been longer."
