About this book
Shehadah describes six walks he's made through the Middle East, over a period of 26 years. Each walk took place at a different period in Palestinian history, providing a vivid account of the physical and political landscape of the times. 'Shehadah is always engaging... delivering what many activists neglect to mention...' "Independent On Sunday"
When the author first started hill walking in Palestine, in the late 1970s, he was not aware that he was travelling through a vanishing landscape. Recording how the land felt and looked before various calamities, this title attempts to preserve, at least in words, the Palestinian natural treasures that many Palestinians never know.
