This book is not only an inspiring story about the life of Avraham Birin, but it is also a tale of an adventurous spirit. One may say it is a story about Birin's love for his wife, Biblical archaeology and Israel. In detail understandable to the layman, the remarkable discoveries of the Tel Dan excavations are described. An abundance of excellent photographs help to give the reader a delightful experience.
