The cisterns are broken and the waters run to waste, the walls of the vineyards are cast down, the very soil has disappeared from the once fertile terraced heights, the wine presses are covered with weeds, the defenced cities are all a ruin- but, in spite of all this desolation, the Land of our Lord will always have an overwhelming interest for the thoughtful traveller who wishes to trace out on the spot the history of the oldest and most interesting people of the world.Having on the former occasion travelled by the beaten track, via Jerusalem, we this time try a new and unfrequented route.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
