James Howard Kunstler is an American published author of fiction as well as a blogger and social critic. He is also the writer of the television show American Heroes & Legends. He has appeared as himself in several documentaries.

Born in 1948 in New York City, James moved to the suburbs of Long Island in 1954. He would leave to go back to the city three years later with his family, and much of the author’s childhood was spent there. James attended the State University of New York and studied at Brockport Campus, graduating with his degree and finding work as a reporter and writing features for different newspapers.

He also was on staff as a writer for Rolling Stone Magazine. He would leave the position so that he could go write full time in 1975. He is known for writing a history on urban development and suburbia in America with the book The Geography of Nowhere. He is also featured in The End of Suburbia, a documentary on peak oil that has been viewed many times online. He has also written the 2005 book The Long Emergency, a nonfiction work where Kunstler posits that the declining production of oil could lead to a death of the industrialized version of society as we know it and end up leading to American citizens to reside in local communities that are agrarian in nature.

James Howard Kunstler is the creator and author of the World Made by Hand series. The series of novels first began in 2008 when the first book in the series by the same title came out. It would be followed by The Witch of Hebron as well as the third novel A History of the Future and the fourth novel, The Harrows of Spring.

World Made by Hand is the first book in the series by the same name. The author delved into the concept of how a decline in oil being produced and climate change could end up changing the face of society and an end to its industrial nature. This book touches on many of the same subjects as that book, viewing a world that could very well be a reality for America in this fictional rendition of a story where catastrophes overlapping each other end up resulting in a total shift in culture and everyday life for many.

All of the electricity went out, and now the time where people just zipped around in automobiles to get to where they need to go has ended. In New York upstate in a smaller town called Union Grove, people are living a different version of the future that they thought that they might enjoy. Making a living is difficult and with transportation being so risky and slow, they grow the food close by. It takes a lot of time and a lot of hard work to maintain these food sources, and to these people, they don’t really know what other places are like outside of this.

They don’t even know whether the President is still out there somewhere. There are plenty of challenges to take on for these people, and they do their best to work fields with horses, and to fish in the rivers. Follow along with Robert Earle and the people he lives with in a version of the United States very different from the one that they and we know. An interesting read that has a lot going for it, pick up a copy and see what you think!

The Witch of Hebron is a sequel to the first book in the World Made By Hand series by James Howard Kunstler. Society is no longer powered by oil, making it necessary for people to function without the gas powering their cars on the world wide web or any number of luxuries that they used to enjoy.

They have no idea whether the government even exists anymore. In Union Grove in New York, they get around by horses now. Farming has become in fashion simply because of its ability to help them survive. Resources exist but get more scarce all the time, and wars are fought over them. The countryside is rife with bandits.

When a cult rears its head, will it threaten the peace that Union Grove has worked so hard to provide? Pick up a copy of this book to find out what happens!

A History of the Future is the third novel to come out in the World Made by Hand series written by James Howard Kunstler. Union Grove and its residents are back and doing just what they are able to in order to try and survive and maybe even have a happy existence rooted in simplicity.

The people that live in Union Grove are getting ready for their version of the holidays. While it used to be a time to buy everything, now it is a time to spend the time with those you care about. It’s no longer about rushing out and getting a bunch of physical things for other people to enjoy.

Daniel is the son of Robert Earle, and he has come back on Christmas Eve on a stormy night. He’s returned from touring for two years throughout the country, the former United States of America. He is dealing with much illness and exhaustion, but starts to tell them what he has seen as he slowly starts to feel up to it and recovers from his ordeal.

He speaks of the nation and how it has broken up into three different regions, each with it sown independence. He also tells them about the journey he took into the center of a new Foxfire Republic. The government is grouped in Tennessee and is headed by Loving Morrow, an evangelical tyrant who does what she wants.

Union Grove is rocked when the murder of a father and his son appears to have been carried out by his wife. Stephen Bullock is the town magistrate, and he wants to see justice. Can the citizens deal with this new crime in an orderly fashion? Or will restless moods get the better of everyone? Read this book to find out!
