A popular Israeli song from years past begins with the words, "From atop the tower I gaze around me / My eye swallows distances."
From the top of a tower, we can view the landscape at the widest possible angle of 360 degrees. This book enables a similar view, and yet another view, and still more views of Israel.
This small country offers an amazing abundance of landscapes and sites. Within a range of several kilometers, the scenery can change from hilly and green to desert. One country contains completely different climates and land formations, at a distance of a half-hour car drive. Israel's archeological sites are thousands of years old, and the modern visitor can see the places where Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived and walked, as did David and Solomon, the Prophets and others. The astounding photographs in this book convey the splendor of the rich scenery that fills this country.
