Martin Fletcher - Walking Israel: A Personal Search for the Soul of a Nation
Longtime chief of NBC Tel Aviv News Bureau, Martin Fletcher brings a unique perspective on Israel as he walks the 100-mile coastline from Lebanon to Gaza.  With a backpack, change of clothes, and a cell phone, Fletcher sets out on his personal journey of discovery of Israel along what he considers to be the most interesting hundred miles in the world. Fletcher believes, "The farther you move from the centers of power, and the closer you get to the real people, the less their stories fit the political platitudes." Sharing history and musings down memory lane with the "Joe Shmoes" he meets along the way takes us far away from the center of officialdom, negotiations, and endless agreements and disputes. He fills his book with life lessons learned from observing Israeli Arabs, Holocaust survivors and life with the kibbutzniks. With humor, historical insight, and stories of the people he meets, Fletcher offers us his interpretation of Israel in a spectacular and unique way.  One of the most respected foreign correspondents today, Fletcher has covered wars and natural disasters in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, winning five Emmys throughout his 35-year career.
