Though she is a strong supporter of Israel, she could not attend as an American delegate to the U.N., so instead she decides to send her grandson to visit the places she would visit, meet the people she would meet, and convey back impressions and detailed notes.Israel is no tourist destination at the time and the ongoing violence in the region is enough to discourage the faint of heart or purpose. In Eyewitness in Israel: 1948, Curtis Roosevelt gives a personal narrative of a nation not yet six months old, and the privileges and pressures of being Eleanor Roosevelt’s grandson.From reviews of Curtis Roosevelt: Too Close to the Sun: Growing up in the Shadow of my Grandparents, Franklin and Eleanor“a splendid, intimate memoir.’—Publisher’s Weekly“Curtis Roosevelt covers the constellations of the personalities in the presidential family … with genuine feeling.”—Booklist“Even as a young boy Roosevelt had a keen eye for what was going on around him.”—USA Today
