Gerry Kruger's Books
Gerry Kruger, like her father, finds fulfillment in helping others succeed. It was her father’s dedication to making life better for others that inspired her to write TWO OF US: A Father-Daughter Memoir. As an essayist on National Public Radio, she detailed the adventures of a lame Canada goose that walked to her pond, and she published these essays in ON KRUGER POND: Charlie’s Story. Gerry and her father believed people could overcome setbacks and obstacles just as Charlie the goose did, with a little help and attention from caring individuals.

NEW: The Medicine Woman
In the aftermath of the United Authority's fall, war, pestilence, and famine continue to ravage the land. Nation-states, already reeling from societal and environmental collapse, fail to provide the basic necessities. Bloodshed brings strife to a land born after the end of electricity, as MilitiaMen coalesce around the banners of ambitious warlords. After five years of relative peace, the Medicine Woman is kidnapped, becoming enmeshed in a brutal conflict between those who love her and those who want to weaponize her. In the sequel to The Medicine Girl, the Medicine Woman struggles to maintain her humanity. Her mother's mandate to "alleviate suffering" proves almost impossible to fulfill as she makes her way through an amoral world—hell-bent on making her an instrument of destruction.
The Medicine Girl
Before she is sold off by her father, the Medicine Girl must escape the Florida Penal Colony. But where? Environmental degradation has rendered the few former states uninhabitable while other regions have declared themselves sovereign nations. While MilitiaMen wage war against each other, she knows choosing the wrong faction means the difference between a hard life and a painful death. The Medicine Girl must use her wits and vast knowledge of natural remedies to barter her way through a wasteland. But her mother's directive to “alleviate suffering” in a place with endless hardships makes her question all that she’s ever known.
