THE SIXTIES: AN AMERICAN FAMILY IN EUROPE
"An archaeological dig into the present," is the author's description of her book, illustrated with international political cartoons and color sites of Zurich and the Paris suburb of Neuilly, the two cities of residence.

The retail price is $25 and can be purchased from Amazon; Barnes & Noble; Baker & Taylor; Atlas Books.com, the book's distributor; Gazelle (in Europe); and directly from Ada Feyerick (afeyerick @aol.com).

Illustrated with hundreds of site photographs, artifacts, maps, and charts, the ancient world and the Bible come alive.
