Books Info:

Grandpa's Mountain free pdf It was during the euphoric aftermath of Israels victorious Six Day War in 1967, that Yoram (Richie) Friedman uprooted his wife and ten-year-old son from the good life- in the States, to settle on a picturesque border kibbutz in Northern Israel. In October 1973, the reality of their seemingly idyllic new home comes into sharp relief as Syrian war planes fly menacingly overhead, signaling the beginning of Israel's next (and most costly) war with its Arab neighbors the Yom Kippur War. The trauma of that horrific conflict somehow strengthens Yorams Zionist ideals of helping to rebuild the Jewish homeland, but his wife and son reject his lofty principles and decide to return to the States, resulting in a wrenching silence from both sides of the ocean lasting almost a quarter century. Then one day, Yoram receives an unexpected letter from his twelve-year-old grandson a new Boy Scout and budding adventurer. Their ensuing pen-pal relationship brings about a special bond between grandpa and grandson, as adventures of the past intermingle with present day events in a compelling and healing love story spanning the generations.

About Arieh Larkey

"Arieh (Richard) Larkey was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1935. At the age of eighteen, he volunteered to serve in the American Army and was sent to Occupied Germany as part of the NATO forces, and it was there that his sense of Jewish identity intensified. Following the Six-Day War in 1967, Arieh once again experienced a heightened awareness of his Jewish heritage, which eventually led to his aliya in 1971. After a thirty-year architectural career, Larkey closed his Jerusalem office and began to write. His books include: A Townhouse in Jerusalem (1996), Ruth Revisited- A Survivor's Journey (2001), Landscape of Conflict, Israel's Northern Frontier (2003), Colors from a Zionist's Palette: A Trilogy (2012), and Grandpa's Mountain: Letters From a Border Kibbutz in Israel (2014). The author divides his time between his home in the historical town of Zichron Yaacov on the Mediterranean coast, and the frontier town of Mitzpeh Ramon in the heart of the Negev Desert in southern Israel, but often returns to his mountain-top retreat on Kibbutz Misgav-Am in the Galilee, when the spirit moves or his muse beckons."
