A pathogen known as the "Vrykolas-Romeros Virus" (VRV) began infecting humans throughout eastern Pennsylvania approximately six weeks prior to the printing of this book. VRV is unlike any virus humankind has ever seen before. It kills its host quickly and within moments reanimates the corpse as a "walking dead" creature that is compelled to bite humans and spread the virus. These abominations are herein referred to as "Zombies." Since the appearance of VRV, worldwide chaos has ensued. The power grid is down, supplies are finite, and Zombies are roaming the landscape. You have found yourself trying to survive as best as you can under these desperate circumstances. The government is determined to find a cure for the VRV, but until we do, you must adapt to overcome the daily challenges to survival. This book will help. Trust science.
