House of Stone
Anthony Shadid recounts the rebuilding of his ancestral home. As he takes you on that journey, he tells you the history of the Middle East this home lives within. He also allows you to meet his family.
Anthony gives you an eye opening look into the world of war that he reports on. The things he sees will affect you. What drew me the most was the story of the house and his family.
The Middle East is a part of the world I know next to nothing about, but have a new appreciation for. I encourage anyone who is fascinated by the Middle East to read this book. Anthony Shadid takes you by the hand and introduces you to this world and all the people who live there.
