From the much lauded author of Breaking News comes a version of Walking the Bible just for Israel.

With its dense history of endless conflict and biblical events, Israel's coastline is by far the most interesting hundred miles in the world. As longtime chief of NBC's Tel Aviv news bureau, Martin Fletcher is in a unique position to interpret Israel, and he brings it off in a spectacular and novel manner. Last year he strolled along the entire coast, from Lebanon to Gaza, observing facets of the country that are ignored in news reports, yet tell a different and truer story. Walking Israel is packed with hilarious moments, historical insights, emotional, true-life tales, and, above all, great storytelling.

A very interesting, insightful, and beautiful story. A reader learns about the history and culture of Israel as they walk along the coast from the north to the south. It is written well with a great amount of imagery and detail. After reading this story, the reader feels as if they've been to some amazing cities - exploring the old city of Acre, dancing at a club in Tel Aviv, eating at a café in Askelon, and much more. Great interviews are recorded with a variety of Israelis as a part of the story. Readers will also learn about Israel's Kibbutz movement and how it is changing.
