About This Book
Black-robed priests roam the countryside with shotguns. The Green Legionnaires break into houses. Acid rains ruin the forest of America, as hordes of refugees from the desolate northern cities travel south for the most terrible of winters.
  
For Arthur Ferrier and his family, the pleasant town of South Haven has long been home. But what was once so familiar and comfortable has now been dissolved into a frightening strangeness. The local newspaper stops delivering, the power fails, and then come the food riots and the closing of the hospitals. For reasons no one really seems to understand, the centers of civilized life are breaking apart all around them. But Arthur remembers his father’s dream, and he fingers the key around his neck—a key that opens a lock to a door far away in the northern mountains, a place where he and Marilyn, his wife, hope to live and raise their children in peace.

Thus begins the odyssey of the Ferrier family as they pursue their last hope: the safe haven prepared by a wise grandfather. It is a journey filled with adventure, peril, and desperate faith. And One Hundred Times to China is a novel of terror, courage, and one family’s fight for survival with life’s greatest  gift as its only weapon—their love for one another.
