The Promised Land and a land of promise...Shalom, Israel!

M. Sasek takes you over superhighways built on ancient sands, through a land of camels and Cadillacs, pomegranates and pipelines, Bibles and Boeings; a sun-drenched land of many traditions—Christian, Jewish and Moslem—from the Sea of Galilee to the Red Sea (it's really blue); to bustling, modern Tel Aviv; Jerusalem, new and old; the Bedouin market at Beersheba ; Mt. Zion; the Room of the Last Supper; King David's Tomb; Tabgha, where a few loaves and fishes fed multitudes; King Solomon's mines; and Kibbutz Yotvata, where lush farms and little sabras blossom in the desert.

The land and the people are presented in a shimmering panorama of many hues, revealing the biblical glory of its past, the golden hope of its future—This is Israel!
