Too little text Feb 28, 2009
I read this book, here in Brazil. This book has many photos(all color), but its text is weak, because there's far less text than needed.I neverwent to Israel, but even to begin, this book isn't the best choice.
CONTENTS: Page 4- Introduction. 5-46 Jerusalem. 47-52 Bethelem. 53 Hebron. 54-57 Jericho. 58-59 Qumran. 61 Ein Gedi. 62-65 Masada. 66-68 The Dead Sea. 69-70 Beer Sheba. 71 Ashdod, Askelon 72-77 Tel Aviv, Jaffa
I didn't wrote all the table of contents up. And this book goes until page 127, about flowers of Israel.On last page, there's an index.
