The land in the title is Israel. The stories, sometimes referred to as the Palestinian and Israeli narratives, are told by Amin Kazak and Shaul Gabbay, respectively. Born in the Holy Land on opposite sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide, both men's lives have been directly, tragically, impacted by the on-going conflict in a region desperately needing peaceful resolution. Believing that greater understanding among their peoples is a step toward peace, they decided to write a book delineating their opposing realities that includes their personal stories.
