Two gray circles around a globe, a green grid is laid out on the globe of the earth, North America is visible in the top left hand corner of the globe, while south america is almost fully visible in the bottom left hand corner, Africa is fully visible and Europe is also partially visible on the globe.

Book Review: “Survivors: A Novel of the Coming Collapse”

A book cover with "James Wesley, Rawles" in white letters, "Survivors" in large black letters, and a black bar with letters in white reading "A Novel Of The Coming Collapse", the cover art appears to be either a HDR photograph or a panting, the colors of the foreground is a sepia grey scale, while the background is orange clouds that appear to be clouds of smoke. The road has many potholes, and there is what appears to be a church toward the middle of the picture, and a broken down VW bus on the right hand side of the picture, the vehicle has a flat tire, white paint, and all windows blown out. There is a man on a horse with two saddle bags a boonie hat on, and rifle slung over his back.
