Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Joshua, xvii:16.)--This is the great plain of Esdraelon. It extends across Central Palestine from the Mediterranean to the Jordan. It separates the mountain ranges of Carmel and Samaria from those of Galilee. The main body of the plain is a triangle. On the east it extends from Jenin to the foot of the hills below Nazareth. It is about 15 miles long; and the north side, formed by the hills of Galilee, are about 12 miles long. From any point of observation in this valley one may see the mountains Gilboa and Little Hermon. It is perhaps the richest valley in the world, and has also been called the great battlefield of the world. It is here that Gideon triumphed, and Saul and Jonathan were overthrown. It is the home of the wild Bedouin, and not more than one-sixth of its soil is cultivated." See 5172BAI/LVi90CAJS (Voyager # 358424)
