Inside of Time is a memoir that comprises the vivid recollections of Ruth Gruber, award-winning writer and a pioneering eyewitness to history. Her sixteenth book since the 1930s, it chronicles her intimate friendships with luminaries of the century, her encounters with the native peoples of Alaska, and her work in Israel as the nation was born. Gruber presents a unique personal philosophy—living inside of time—that has enabled her to forge a trailblazer's life and contribute decades of unique service to humanity. Now she looks back on life from the age of ninety-one, creating a book that all readers eager to learn about the human side of global events will treasure. 16 pages of photographs add to this fascinating life story including the likes of Eleanor Roosevelt, Harold Ickes, and Golda Meir.
