21071 Palestine Pictures or the Story of a Tour through Palestine by Watson.

Palestine Pictures.

An account of the late 19th c tour of an English family in the Holy Land with many friendly stories of the local Moslem people they met. The childcare details, the anecdotes about places they stayed, and the stories about the children, Patrick, about 4, and baby Margaret, bring Mrs. Watson's writing to life in what was probably the only work of hers ever published. A young family's peaceful and inspiring tour though a beautiful land, good little travellers! The little picture collages of local scenes and people are captioned with Biblical references and the text contains Mrs. Ward's thoughtful and nonjudgemental connections to the Old and New Testament. Hard to find. Note: This book has been SOLD.
