While laying the groundwork to write this book I found that I had trouble visualizing the logistics surrounding the area where this storyline took place. I ended up doing 2 years of research before writing the book just to understand the set up for the layout of the storyline.

After this process I was able to produce a documentary which if watched before you read the book will help you understand the logistics of the storyline. From Joseph to the Exodus - A Satellite Perspective

 

This story covers the time period from the first plague through the camp before crossing the Red Sea  of the Hebrew's exodus from Egypt. It is a massive novel covering a massive storyline.

To help you navigate through the storyline I've added some 'helps' below that you may want to look over before starting to read the story. Most of them you won't know what you're looking at, but once you start to read the story they will come to your remembrance. At this point, go back to these 'helps' and let them help you to envision your way through this massive storyline undertaking.

Be sure you read the 'Introduction' before you start the chapters.
