“I began writing the book eleven years ago when my children were young. I would tell my children late night stories that emphasized family values, wholesome living and the ability to survive against any obstacle. The Robinsons were faced with many of the same challenges that exist in the world today – that threatened families, nations, and freedom.” – TJ Hoisington
