Moon of Israel is a novel by Rider Haggard, first published in 1918 by John Murray. The novel narrates the events of the Biblical Exodus from Egypt told from the perspective of a scribe named Ana.
Haggard dedicated his novel to Sir Gaston Maspero a distinguished Egyptologist and director of Cairo Museum.
"This is the story of certain of the days that I, the scribe Ana, son of Meri, lived through, here upon this earth . . ." "I tell of Merapi -- who was named Moon of Israel -- and of her people, the Hebrews, who dwelt for long in Egypt and departed thence -- having paid us back in loss and shame for all the good and ill we gave them."
