The following is a detailed historical and informational account on the creation of one of most renowned cultural heritage sites, Saint Mary, which evolved from a rickety collection of makeshift
huts to a military strongpoint vital to the events of the war between Northwood and Silangan. 400 years since its establishment, this informational booklet is meant to educate and inform those
interested in the history of Saint Mary before, during and after the years of the apocalypse dubbed W day. This literary piece contains letters, diary entries, literary work citations and even
stubs along with appropriate text which correlates to the chronological flow of events that will be discussed and experienced by the survivors. Most of the cited materials have survived the war and
are on display in Saint Mary and, as with the intent of this book, seeks to educate those who wish to dive into what life was in those chaotic years. Saint Mary Safe Zone is a walled shelter, and
shaped by the apocalypses and as will be explain in this book prove why this location is dubbed 'the herb among the thorn of roses'.
