About the Book

Imagine living life the way our forefathers did—a simple, uncomplicated black and white existence where major decision making was centred around placing food on the table for the family. What if that choice was made possible? What if a person could opt out of the rat race? Could you leave behind the convenience and comfort of the 21st century? Could a semi-independent state function with minimal interference from the outside world, and without modem technology?


It took millionaire businessman Duke Branigan many years, and a huge amount of his personal fortune to create, but in 1981 the semi-independent Branigan County opened its doors for business. Cross that imaginary date line and one travels back nearly 140 years to a time where the convenience of those bygone days is acceptable, but progress is forbidden.


Branigan County is no holiday camp, it is a commitment. Can it work? Do those who have chosen the good-life want it to work? And why does a man like McCreedie become so important to its survival?
