From Barren Rocks...to Living Stones was so well written that I did not want it to end! This memoir is such a wonderful and personal way to learn history! I really could not put it down and I don't usually read history books of any kind. It was not written in the first person like most memoirs, rather Jon refers to himself as the character "Jon" in story form, which makes for me the book all the more readable and entertaining.
This book truly expanded my global awareness! I was a teen during the 60s as was author Jon Magee and am thankful to have his account of life at that time in the Middle East from a Westerner's point of view. Also, anyone who has moved about as a child would identify with his journey and struggles adapting to new environments and learn from the wealth of lessons he shares on his journey. Definitely going to give this one 5 stars and recommend it highly!
