Shasha Meret B&W drawings; B&W photos. New in As New jacket. Book Condition: NEW 2003 HarperCollins hardcover (pictorial boards0 & DJ (in mylar jacket), first edition, first printing. Wonderful B&W drawings by Sasha Meret. B&W photos. Content: While in Jerusalem, Feiler, the author of the adult book by the same name, walked across the Middle East, exploring the places where the biblical stories ostensibly took place. He began at the intersection of the Tigeris and Eurphrates rivers, a likely spot for the Garden of Eden, then headed to Turkey to find Noah's Ark; to Ur and Abraham's home; to Egypt, Moses and Joseph's adopted land; and finally to Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Feiler writes in a conversational way that will draw them close, and his significant descriptive abilities will ground familiar stories in reality. Effective black-and-white photographs and evocative line drawings are scattered throughout. There are also many maps of the biblical places. [1 copy]
I rented this book from the library as a "geography" book for my 7th grader, although it is written for younger students as well. She liked it so much she made me buy it! This from not the most enthusiasticbook reader. So it must be good.

The author's photographs as well as Meret's line illustrations cover the sites of his route and maps as well as swirling, fantasy-influenced images of desert travelers surrounding Old Testament passages. He combines vivid regional descriptions with his own musings and revelations: "The Nile is to rivers what the Bible is to books: big, long, and important." Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
