Julie trudges through the desert with no water. Scott knows where to find a good well ...

... and also fascinating history about the Holy Land. A lot of history. They both enjoy a tall glass of ice water while discussing The Source by James Michener at a Good Story is Hard to Find.


  1. A wonderful book! I read it when it first came out (hey, I'm old, okay?), and again in my twenties. Overdue for a re-read!
    Michener has a gift for making complex issues and events understandable to a simpleton like me. THE SOURCE and CARAVANS serve as very effective and clear introductions to Israel and Afghanistan.

    1. Interestingly the other Michener book I've read is Caravans and we talk about that briefly at the beginning of the podcast. He really did have a gift for explanation while telling a great tale.
