The October 2, 2016 Miami Herald describes The Desert and the Cities Sing: Discovering Today's Israel as "a kaleidoscopic view of contemporary Israel." 

Connie Ogle interviews authors Lin Arison and Diana C. Stoll in today's article: Read, watch, wear: Your guide to modern Israel in one box. 

“I’m a travel writer, and I want people to love Israel, to feel what the land is," explains Arison (who also collaborated with Stoll on Feast for the Senses: A Musical Odyssey in Umbria). "I’m hoping people will see it as a nation like any other nation and look at it as a place to travel to, to explore and make your own decisions about.”
