…a great story, …a pleasure to read. …beautifully written… —

…a fantasy world to rival the most unique. —

…everything that kids look for in Young Adult books and more. …a major find and certainly a joy to read. — Fantasy Book Critic

…took me completely by surprise. …(C. R. Wiley’s) writing style is absolutely charming and sinister all in the same breath… –

…a story that anybody can appreciate and indeed thrill to, but whose deeper foundations can be glimpsed by those with eyes to see. —Gilbert Magazine, the offical publication of The American Chesterton Society


Man of the House

A Handbook for Building a Shelter That Will Last in a World That Is Falling Apart

PrintWhat is your plan for the end of the world as we know it? How will you protect the people you love? What will you leave to them when you are gone? The good news is this is not the first time the world has ended. What’s more, men were made for times like these. And the men of the past–the good ones, anyway–have left us a plan to follow. They built houses to last–houses that could weather a storm. This book contains their plan.

“With wit and flair and a manly willingness to face the facts of life, Wiley shows us how to have a real household ​rather than a chilly wayside inn, and how to help build again the real local communities that require such households for their existence. Without a recovery of manhood, it is not going to happen. Pastors, this book is for you, too.” —Anthony Esolen, Thomas Moore College; author of Out of the Ashes: Reclaiming American Culture
