In 1863, Henry Baker Tristram, renowned theologian and scholar, and his team, spent ten months traveling and documenting the wondrous landscape and diverse people in and around Palestine. The team consisted of an artist, photographer, botanist, ornithologist, and Tristram himself was a noted naturalist. This extraordinary travelogue examines Palestine and the Bible through the natural history of the land and its people, providing descriptions, illustrations, and photographs of Scriptural landmarks referenced in the Bible.

Mr. Tristram is a clergyman, devout, earnest, intelligent; but he has travelled much, and rubbed off the angularities which the clergy, and indeed most ‘home keeping’ men, are so liable to contract. He is as much excited as any one in the chase of the wild boar, notes down with exultation whenever he has been successful with his gun, enjoys his pipe and his coffee over the camp fires, and has a firm belief in the good old creed that every difficulty must yield to English hardihood and pluck.
A clergyman, as yet unperplexed with any doubt touching the ancient record, he lingers over each detail of scriptural name and locality with loving reverence.
