#BookTour: Forty Days at Kamas, by @PrestonFleming


 
Synopsis
Inspired by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s account of a
Soviet labor camp revolt in Gulag Archipelago, Volume III, the story of FORTY
DAYS AT KAMAS follows political prisoners and security officials at a
corrective labor camp in Kamas, Utah, where inmates seize control during the
summer of 2024.


Kamas, Utah. 2024. In the
totalitarian dystopia that America has become after the Unionist Party’s rise
to power, the American West contains vast Restricted Zones dotted with ghost
towns, scattered military garrisons and corrective labor camps where the regime
disposes of its real and suspected enemies. Kamas is one such camp.

On a frigid March night, a
former businessman from Pittsburgh, Paul Wagner, arrives at a labor camp in
Utah’s Kamas Valley, a dozen miles east of the deserted resort town of Park
City, which prisoners are dismantling as part of a massive recycling project.
When Wagner arrives, he is
unaware that his eleven-year-old daughter, Claire, has set off to Utah to find
him after becoming separated from her mother at the Philadelphia Airport. By an
odd quirk of fate, Claire has traveled on the same train that carried her
father into internal exile.
Only after Wagner has
renounced all hope of survival, cast his lot with anti-regime hard-liners and
joined them in an unprecedented and suicidal revolt does he discover that
Claire has become a servant in the home of the camp’s Deputy Warden. Wagner is
torn between his devotion to family and loyalty to his fellow rebels until, on
the eve of an armored assault intended to crush the revolt, he faces an
agonizing choice between a hero’s death and a coward’s freedom.
In FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS,
author Preston Fleming offers a stirring portrait of a man determined to
survive under the bleakest of conditions and against formidable odds. Fleming’s
gift for evocative prose brings the characters and events to life in a way that
arouses emotional tension while also engaging the reader’s intellect with
fundamental questions about the future of American society.
