A journalist, editor, and author who calls Seattle home, Ramzy Baroud has written powerfully in his first book, My Father Was a Freedom Fighter: Gaza’s Untold Story, and now in his newest, The Last Earth: A Palestinian Story (Pluto Press) of his Palestinian homeland. The newer book is drawn from first-hand accounts of Palestinian people and what a life of struggle for peace and independence are, as lived in everyday life.

“A powerful tool to revive and record the human history of al Nakba, a must read for all those who want to see the concealed human dimension of the Palestinian life and suffering”' —Salman Abu Sitta.
