Not a parallel book to Morton's In the Steps of the Master, although the idea was probably fathered by that popular religious-travel-book. This is the first volume (Moses. The Conqueror is the second), and Golding, with two companions, has retraced the probable steps of Moses, up to the time of the giving of the tablets. The material is somewhat a pot pourri of history, legend, imagination, anecdote. There is a good deal of autobiographical material included, -- flashbacks to Golding's childhood and pictures of a father who read from the Hebrew classics to his children; anecdotal material of the three travelers' experiences in running down the facts and fiction of Moses' peregrinations. Well written, readable, emotional at times, with the human interest element and the religious element stronger than the travel.
