With magical landscapes and a rich variety of climates, this small sliver of land boasts a rich historical past second to none. From prehistory through Bible times, myriads of conquests and upheavals, the country is studded with monuments bearing witness to these and later periods. On its part, The Israel Parks and Nature Authority takes great pride in protecting and constantly improving these national treasures. Profusely illustrated, this unique guide highlights the turbulent history of Israel, its imposing archaeological sites, and the unequaled fauna and flora that can be found in Israels abounding national parks and nature reserves. No one is better qualified than Azaria Alon to have written this guide and handbook. At age 90 he is still going strong.
