The closest thing to experiencing true Spain - all of it - without boarding a plane!
I read this book several years ago prior to my first trip to Spain. My first Michener book, I was fascinated with his ability to introduce me to the land and its people from a perspective almost impossible to experience in today's high-tech world of media-sponsored travel. Reading the book I felt as though I were sipping coffee at the table next to the 'tertulia', I could see the lines in the faces of the Extremaduran men and women, and I could sense the unparalleled diversity of the country's topography and cultural heritage. My wife, daughter, and I are relocating to Spain next month, and since this will be their first experience with the country, I am now re-ordering the book to share it with them so that they, too, might have 'the perfect backdrop' for such a unique place.
