It contains stories, some of them contributed by four other writers. And it shows absolutely marvelous and remarkable photos. Such beautiful pictures are revealed in this book - it is a great pleasure to turn page after page. My absolute favorite is the double page with a photograph taken at a pomegranate plantation - it is unbelievably delightful! Eilon Paz is the skillful photographer with the exquisite eye!
