Publisher Comments:

After growing up as a fully assimilated Jew, in his mid-thirties Paul Cowan embarked upon a journey to discover and appreciate his Jewish origin. This "orphan in history" relates his search for these roots, detailing the path he took from his Park Avenue home to nineteenth-century Lithuania to a contemporary Israeli kibbutz, leading to the sublime discovery that he is the descendant of rabbis.<P>An Orphan in History is a classically beautiful, inspiring story of how one man evolved from describing himself as "an American Jew" to "an American and a Jew." A story that will inspire readers on their own journey to their true self.
