The Hour of Sunlight: One Palestinian’s Journey from Prisoner to Peacemaker by by Sami Al Jundi and Jen Marlowe

Growing up, Palestinian Sami Al Jundi learned to hate occupying Israeli forces. When he and his friends built a bomb to attack Israeli police, Al Jundi was imprisoned for ten years. He read extensively while in prison, studying war and gradually becoming a peacemaker. Upon his release, he joined forces with others to create Seeds of Peace, a summer camp in Maine that brought Arabs and Israelis together to the Middle East. This poignant memoir gives readers a fascinating glimpse into the daily life and politics of the Middle East. (Nation Books)
