First-time author Jerry Oliver announces the release of his new book, A Time to Stand: The Day They Burned Old Temple Down.

Set in a small town in Oklahoma, this insightful and riveting novel portrays the struggle and insurrection by disaffected citizens against the federal government.

When Jerry Oliver, after a long and distinguished career in service to his country, becomes mayor of a small town in Oklahoma, he thinks he's living on easy street. But when an impossible string of mandates from the federal government threatens to shut down the town, the good citizens rise up. With jobs lost, mortgages foreclosed, infrastructures crumbling, and gas and food prices through the roof, the battle cry from Temple fuels a groundswell of support across the country.
Militias from other states bivouac outside of town, and the President calls in the troops and the FBI to quash the rebellion.  But the CIA has other plans. Interagency jealousy and power struggles in Washington destine the town of Temple to become the torch that ignites the next revolution in the United States of America.
