"Exodus is the story of the greatest miracle of our times: the rebirth of a nation. It tells the story of Jews coming back after centuries of abuse, torture and murder to carve an oasis in the sand with guts and with blood." These were Leon Uris's own words about Exodus. In Exodus Revisited, he returns to the places and the people that first inspired his famous novel, and looks again at a vibrant young nation.
