A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

From King Solomon's building of the First Temple to the Six Day War, the history of the Wailing Wall and its ties to the Jewish people are explored in Fisher's evocative illustrations and powerful text. Black-and-white illustrations.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-- In large format, similar to Pyramid of the Sun, Pyramid of the Moon (Macmillan, 1988), Fisher recounts the history of the Western (Wailing) Wall of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Briefly, beginning in Abraham's time, he chronicles the building and destruction of the First and Second Temples, Palestine's occupation by various cultures, and the history of the Jewish people in the Holy Land to the present. A chronology and a well-defined map of the area further clarify the information. Dramatic, two-page paintings in black-and-white acrylics showing architecture, costumes, and weapons of various periods enliven the text. Small symbols (in purple) representing the various cultures mentioned--Jewish, Babylonian, Persian, Greek, Roman, Christian, and Islamic--accent each page. Fisher successfully presents a complex chunk of history in a simplified attractive format, making it comprehensible even to those unfamiliar with the topic. As the only history of this important archaeological landmark for young people, this book is a good supplement to collections on Israel. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
