A person does not grow from the ground like a vine or a tree, one is not part of a plot of land. Mankind has legs so it can wander.”

In the Spring of 1942, soldiers from the Japanese Imperial Army overwhelmed United States forces in the Philippine Islands. The Japanese forcibly marched 76,000 prisoners 60 miles over what became known as the Death Road. In just over a week, 5,200 men were dead from murder, starvation, disease, and exposure. This is the story of one who survived. Based on the diary and experiences of Joseph Bandoni, this is an account of World War II in the Pacific, the Bataan Death March, and the liberation of the Far East. Written by Gail Corondoni, Joseph's daughter, with her father over an 8 year period, this book is based on the secret diary Joseph kept during the war and captivity. That diary is now in the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

For more than four decades, James F. Strange has been one of the leading figures in biblical archaeology, beginning with his collaboration with Eric and Carol Meyers in their excavations in Upper Galilee in the 1970s and early '80s, and continuing especially in his role as the Director of the University of South Florida's excavations at Sepphoris, a position he held for twenty-seven years. During that time, he not only advanced our understanding of civilization in the Galilee within the formative years of Christianity and rabbinic Judaism, but he also trained a new generation of scholars in the rigorous methodologies of archaeological field work--methodologies that he helped pioneer. In this volume, nearly two dozen of his colleagues, former students, and other fellow scholars honor Prof. Strange with a series of essays on biblical archaeology and its related, interdisciplinary fields, often building upon his own considerable scholarly contributions. Collectively, they offer the reader the latest insights and discoveries in field excavations, ancient textual studies, and social scientific analyses, forming a fitting tribute to Prof. Strange's own outstanding life and legacy.
