Overview

Chesterton's classic 'philosophical travelogue' details his thoughts and conclusions during a visit to the Middle East in 1920. With his characteristic bluntness - leavened as always with humour and wit - Chesterton describes the day to day life of the people, and of the diverse tensions existing between Islam, Christianity and Judaism - the three great religions that lay claim to this place as Holy Ground.
