Overview

"A stunning piece of nonfiction about the tortured and heartbreaking stalemate in the Middle East. This is a brilliant book superbly written and devastatingly insightful. The fact that they raised two little girls while reporting this story makes every explosion, every riot, every checkpoint especially upsetting. I don't know how they did it."?Sebastian Junger, author of War

"Myre and Griffin have written an extraordinary story personal yet hard-hitting that takes you inside the world of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the hopes and fears that drive it. There are no punches pulled here. A must-read for anyone who prefers Middle East reality over fantasy."?Aaron David Miller, author of The Much Too Promised Land: America's Elusive Search for Arab-Israeli Peace

"This Burning Land is what you get when you unleash two excellent reporters on one of the world's most compelling stories. With eloquence, insight, and a real sense of urgency, Greg Myre and Jennifer Griffin bring to life places like Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip during a time of siege and chaos. Even if you disagree with their conclusions, you will be swept up in their story of tragedy and hope."?Jeffrey Goldberg, author of Prisoners: A Story of Friendship and Terror

"Superbly written and devastatingly insightful." ?Sebastian Junger, author of War
