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.
