9780006280361: Like Water in a Dry Land: A journey into modern Israel

In December 1994, Bettina Selby set off on a journey from Cyprus to the Holy Land. Riding her bicycle wherever possible, she travelled through Lebanon, Syria and Jordan to Jerusalem. Spurred on by the Jordan/Israel peace treaty and an audience with King Hussein, Bettina felt that perhaps a new perspective on Israel could be achieved. She travelled widely, from the ruins of Byblos in Lebanon to the Armenian Cathedral Church in Jerusalem, to the refugee camps of Gaza. She has produced a fascinating account of her travels and a valuable contribution to the understanding of the modern Holy Land.

Synopsis:

In 1985 Bettina Selby rode by bicycle from London to Jerusalem following the routes of the medieval crusades and the early Christian pilgrims. Ten years later, at a time of intense political initiative for peace, she returned to Israel, and also spent time "discovering" the Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. This book aims to interpret the political situation in both the Arab and Jewish sides of the border, relating it to the history and religion in an entertaining way.
