Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the sixth in the "Traveler's Tales" series, whose unifying theme is the presentation of the character of a country by a compilation of nonfiction essays. For Spain, we have selections on, among other things, bullfighting, food, tourism, Don Quixote, flamenco, and King Juan Carlos by unknown as well as familiar authors. The editors' stated goal is to give insight into Spain through anecdote rather than information. The book is for the reader who has already been to Spain as well as the new visitor. Each selection has interesting sidebars from other authors. Some illustrations are included, and a map of the country will be printed in the published version. Very well organized and selected, this is highly recommended for travel collections.-Mary Ann Parker, Dept. of Water Resources Law Lib., Sacramento, Cal.
