Originally published in Arabic less than a year after the outbreak of the Lebanese civil war in 1975, this is the first English translation of Mahmoud Khalil Saab's Stories and Scenes from Mount Lebanon. Saab's meticulously narrated stories and accounts of people and events in the "small beautiful country," as he liked to describe his native land, convey the character of life in Lebanon as only someone who experienced it can do. Saab traveled around the country by car to interview people who had lived events or heard of them from their elders. Anyone with an interest in the values, customs, and heritage of the people of Lebanon, and particularly the Druze, will want to read this book.
