Join a journey of millennia in this remarkable collection of short stories
from popular author Etka Gitel Schwartz. From the splitting of the Red
Sea to the hedgerows of Normandy, from ancient Jerusalem to the
Catskills: here are the voices of children and adults, paratroopers, pilgrims,
tollbooth operators and rabbi detectives, united all in
triumphant, passionate celebration of the Jewish spirit.
An impossible choice is offered in a tiny jail before dawn—and death.
An injured U.S. Marine finds himself a stranger in his own life, a
child robbed of name or identity inherits a family of millions, and
joyous multitudes throng the roads to ancient Jerusalem. Two mothers
exchange babies and change history, Eisenhower’s Cow visits a board
meeting, the CIA’s top balabuste comes out of retirement, and the Rotberg
family unwittingly wreaks matchmaking havoc. From the oilfields of
Galveston and the battlefields of Chickamauga, the bonfires of Meron and
the frigid haystacks of the Hungarian border, emerge adventures both
true and fictional to entertain, ignite and inspire.
Join the Caravan of Jewish experience. sojourn through travail, through
hope and discovery, and emerge exultant. drink deeply from the oasis of
the soul and taste history, heritage and destiny, today and tomorrow and
a thousand generations glittering across the sky.
