In his usual style, Michener tells the history of the Israel area from earliest per-history to modern times - well 1965 modern. This includes up to some of the Arab - Israeli conflict.
I had a little trouble reading this book. As usual Michener has a string of stories in various historical times. These are strung together by a historical dig story. I lost patience with the distractions of the string-together story and read all the historical fiction stories (in order) first, skipping over the string-together story. Then after I had finished the individual stories found it interesting enough to read just the string-together story, just for completeness, and enjoyed it too.
It is a fairly standard Michener book and a good read. ~ 1975 ~
