I LOVE MICHENER! This guy rocks! I want to read as many of his books. A friend of mine told me that he has a team of like 30 people that help him write and do reseach. I kind of lost some respect but then thought - hey you do what you have to do. If you want to write a killer historical book like this, you need to have 30 people helping you. Better than only one and getting the facts wrong.
Seriously, This book details the history of the Israel/Palistine area from the begining of time to 1964. Reading this book I learned a lot about the Jewish customs, their sorted history, the embarrasing and horrible crusades, and more about the Jewish religion. Other books written by him are The Covenant (read it too and loved), Hawaii, Mexico, Centenial and the Drifters. I think I am going to try to find drifters next.
For another cool book review, check this one out.
Note: there are many different covers to this book.
