Description

Shared by Israelis, Jordanians, and Palestine, the Dead Sea is a unique salt-lake of exceptional value set at the lowest point on earth. It is also a looming regional disaster--huge sinkholes, abandoned beaches, and collapsing roads on all sides presage an ecological catastrophe. So far, regional leaders have failed to mount an effective response. Enter our heroes. Three men— an Israeli, a Jordanian, and a Palestinian--propose a bold first step: an unprecedented and dangerous swim across the Dead Sea.
