When an archaeological team sets to work at Makor, an ancient city in Galilee, it unearths not only shards of pottery but, in James Michener's hands, the story of a people, the Jews. God must have had something special in mind for the region south and east of the Mediterranean, the "cradle of civilization," for it spawned fierce, troublesome, brilliant and gifted people. Persians, Jews, Arabs who gave the world the concept of monotheism and three of its great religions. Of all these tribes it is the Jews who have had the widest dispersal and made the greatest cultural contributions. Through the characters we meet in Michener's fiction, we understand better how this came to be

Angle of repose by Wallace Stegner( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Wallace Stegner's uniquely American classic centers on Lyman Ward, a noted historian, who relates a fictionalized biography of his pioneer grandparents at a time when he has become estranged from his own family. Through a combination of research, memory, and exaggeration, Ward voices ideas concerning the relationship between history and the present, art and life, parents and children, husbands and wives. Like other great quests in literature, Lyman Ward's investigation leads him deep into the dark shadows of his own life. The result is a deeply moving novel that, through the prism of one family, illuminates the American present against the fascinating background of its past
