The Most Comprehensive Survival Book Ever Written! Follow Army Ranger Instructor, Engineer, Off-Grid Builder, and Survival Expert Joshua Morris (M.S.) as he gives a chillingly accurate description of the coming societal collapse, and how to survive the coming Dark Age through self-reliance, self-defense, and preparedness homesteading.

Joshua has mastered chaos, parachuting into Iraq in March of 2003, graduating Ranger School and Sniper School, and surviving multiple worldwide deployments, prior to earning advanced degrees in both History and Engineering, and then building his own off-grid homestead and farm.
