Is America on the verge of secession?
In this exciting, revolutionary novel, author Don Durrett creates a future where one California county, Kern County, secedes from the rest of the state to form its own country called Isabella.
Kern County: The Path to Secession and a New Constitution portrays how this new country comes into being. The centerpiece is a new constitution that attempts to solve most of society's lingering problems. It is ambitious and full of extraordinary ideas never attempted before in America.
Kern County is shown to be an ideal location for secession because of its abundance of oil and agricultural revenue, as well as a small population (less than 1 million people). If the citizens reorganize government and create a new economy, it might be a prosperous place. The book explores whether they will come to this conclusion in the future or not.
This story examines secession movements in the near future, and what kind of constitutions they may live by. Will there be places like Isabella that completely re-organize society and start over? Kern County: The Path to Secession and a New Constitution shares some of these possibilities. It is guaranteed to make you ponder the possibilities of how we all might change.
