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)
